Director

Director is a full-blown multimedia authoring tool. In fact, it's just about the only one that has been available since Quark, Inc. suspended development of its competing tool, mTropolis. In Director, you can create animations that are highly interactive and that take advantage of advanced programmatic controls created with Director's scripting language, called Lingo.

To build a project—called a movie—in Director, you begin by importing or painting cells of animation into a cast. Then you place the cast members on a stage as sprites, which you can animate by tweening or by cycling through consecutive cast members. You control sprites with a spreadsheet-like timeline called the Score. Finally, you give sprites behaviors by using the Lingo language to attach programs called scripts.
