Points to remember

The long talked about future of the Internet is here…and multimedia has arrived as a necessary and integral part. So many people now regularly surf the World Wide Web that no one can any longer doubt the Internet's influence on society. And Internet users aren't just looking for simple information—they expect to be entertained and amused in the process. The companies that maintain Web sites, who are maybe your current or potential employers, expect their sites to offer ever more diversion to entice people to visit them. With Director's Internet capabilities, you can be part of that creation process.

In this chapter, we'll look at Shockwave, Macromedia's technology for adding multimedia flash and functionality to the Web. You'll get to know all of its interlocking parts, and you'll learn how to use them for dazzling results. We'll wrap up by sharing tips on how to integrate your Shockwave productions into HTML pages and taking a look at what your work looks like when viewed through a browser.
