Q: What do you mean by 'software demo'?
A: Product demos are tiny sized multimedia presentations simulating product functionality using our proprietary DemoForge technology. They look much the same as Macromedia Flash clips, but are tailored for software demonstration purposes, making resulting files much more compact.

Q: Who needs software demos and why?
A: Software demonstration clips may be used to demonstrate and promote your products, train your employees, and providing interactive tutorials on your products. All software developing companies benefit from using the demos.

Q: What is the difference between the demo and tutorial?
A: Program features are demonstrated just as you would present them in person to a student or client. With tutorials users perform operations (or watch operations done for them) as they are guided by pop-up text messages
