Hmmm, the way I usually do this is to use QuickTime sprites to add the
interactivity to the image and load it into a player but that
obviously won't work here :) This is nice since the interactivity
becomes part of the movie you create from the still image.
One way is to create some XML markup that represented your
presentation. You could then load that into Revolution which would
dynamically create the presentation based on the XML. Then you are
just creating a shell to parse the XML and present everything. Within
the XML you could have coordinates which define an interactive region.
It might take a little longer to design at first but it would be very
useful moving forward. You could even create a Revolution app that let
you create the XML file and define the interactive regions.
