"Quickly design enhanced HTML5, Flash and more"

Overview

Opus Creator a serious tool for developers who wish to create HTML5 pages and interactive apps for Windows and Mac computers or iOS and Android devices.

Creating effective HTML5 code for app development is pretty hard. Javascript in the form of jQuery is often needed to create a more interactive user experience with mouse-over interaction, timelines, transparents, slideshows, and drag and drop user control. However, Opus Creator can do all of this without the need for scripting. Breathe easy.

A WYSIWYG editor is provided which lets the user create their own presentations, animations, quizzes, web sites and games. Content can be published later as HTML5, burned to a CD, delivered as Flash content, a video, a CD/DVD or an executable file.

Installation

The Opus Creator is a substantial file being 184 MB in size. The installation holds no surprises here with the usual license sign-off, suggested installation folder, etc. The setup package takes the user through the process of installation confirming each stage as it goes along. It does take a while to complete because of the size of this creative application.

No extra unwanted software was included in the software.

Interface

The interface is quite complex. This is clearly a powerful creative application with numerous features. This fact makes it a valuable tool, but also one that will take time to adapt to and learn all the ins and outs.

The interface is well designed and clear. It simply will take time to grasp.

Cons
