Ah, Adobe is a step ahead of you... but they're just not ready for release.

What you need is the new Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended. You can embed flash animation or flv files into a PDF to share. But it looks like you can only preorder the product right now. Check it out:

I can't try it out yet, but am looking forward to the free trial. It looks like you would create empty space in inDesign and just use Acrobat 9 Pro Extended to embed the necessary mulimedia files.

so, are you telling me definitely that you can not import swf's into indesign cs3 (on its own without adobe acrobat)

When you say the free trial will become available, does that simultaneously mean that it will be available to buy !

Lastly, you say 'to a pdf to share' what does that mean, is that your way of saying, you can embed the swf and export the pdf that can be put onto a server or downloaded. What I am trying to say is, can you do what you like with a pdf with a swf embedded or linked to it or are there some things a pdf with just text and images can do that the latter can not.
