Much more than a simple viewer, Composer Player makes it possible for content consumers to have highly interactive experiences with product deliverables.

Composer Player is designed to respond to contact and touch on Microsoft Windows 8 platforms.

Composer Player/Player Pro Capabilities

Composer Player includes a standalone executable (.exe) file that does not require any installation or advanced operating system permissions.

With a Composer Player Pro license, you get all the capabilities of the free Composer Player and the following additional premium features:

  • The ability to save content that has been edited in the Player. (Saving content also requires the Save Right Manager right.)
  • An advanced API that enables enhanced integration and interaction in custom applications.

  • Composer Player and Composer Player Pro are the same executable file. A Composer Player Pro license is required to enable Pro features.
  • The features described in this guide apply to both free and Pro versions of Composer Player unless otherwise noted.
