Ad Builder

Welcome to the User Guide for the Flashtalking Ad Builder. The Ad Builder is a browser-based tool that allows users to build rich media ads for the Flashtalking platform.


Overview

Designed to be easy to use and familiar for any users of design and animation tools, users can create animations and use components to easily add in extra functionality to their ad.

Using the Flashtalking Ad Builder, users can easily build rich media ads, designed to be automatically compatible across all devices and browsers, all without writing a line of code.

Projects are built within Ad Builder, comprising of tools to upload and manage assets, a stage on which to position elements, a timeline to control animation and simple, drag & drop components to ad rich media elements such as videos and dynamically updatable items, automatically linked into the Flashtalking Instant Ads system.
