Chapter 15. Using Xtras

Chapter 15. Using Xtras

Director allows you to add software modules called Xtras, which extend what you can do with Director. With Xtras you can add new cast-member types, expand Director's built-in set of transition effects, import Photoshop layered images, and even add authoring tools. Even Macromedia has used Xtras to improve on Director's features.

Director includes several Xtras, and you can buy them from other companies. Xtravaganza! The Essential Sourcebook for Macromedia Xtras (Peachpit Press, 1998) serves as a printed reference on Xtras. Or you can find Xtras on the Web; Start with Macromedia's Web site; the Downloads section offers several Macromedia Xtras as well as a long list of third-party Xtras. Also, you can write custom Xtras if you have enough programming experience.
