9.3. Introduction to Shockwave

Shockwave for Director is a software component that enables compatible browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer 2.0 and higher to play multimedia Director movies over the Web. Shockwave is designed to work with standard HTTP servers and is ideal for streaming short- to medium-length audio files and advanced multimedia presentations and games.

Shockwave movies are built within Director using the Score window, where all media elements are placed as cast members on channels or tracks along a timeline, as shown in Figure 9-14. Director is a powerful tool for orchestrating multiple media types such as video, animation, and sound into complex interactive presentations.
