Chapter 14. Making Movies for the Web > Working with Shockwave

Working with Shockwave

As you've learned, a Shockwave movie is a Director movie converted for playback in a Web browser. Another notable feature: A Shockwave movie file includes all internal casts but can't embed external casts, which must be provided separately in the Shockwave format. (Director's Publish command creates Shocked external casts for you automatically, in addition to the other Shockwave-related files.) Any linked cast members, such as QuickTime movies, must also be provided separately.

After you create a Shockwave movie, you must embed it in an HTML file so that a Web browser can play it. (Web browsers can't open Shockwave movies directly. Director can create the HTML file for you automatically, with all necessary tags (Figure 14.2) to display the movie in a browser. You also can use a program such as Dreamweaver to insert a Shockwave movie and to further customize the HTML document for other content on the Web page.
