Why Use Shockwave?

The answer to this question depends on your need for online multimedia, but essentially, Shockwave provides a very rich multimedia environment that provides a high level of interac tivity, program control, and excellent animation performance. Shockwave also provides highly efficient audio compression—as much as 176:1—and streaming playback over the Web.

Choosing between Flash and Director for Shockwave development depends on the technical needs of your site. If the multimedia content has to have a lot of programming control, so as to provide decision-making events and other sophisticated types of interactivity, Director is your choice. If you want animation with sound and basic interactivity, such as rollover buttons and clickable hot spots, and if you require fast downloads and compact graphics, Flash is the better candidate.
