Chapter 17. Making Movies for the Web > Creating a Shockwave Movie

Creating a Shockwave Movie

Even with the Shockwave Player installed, a Web browser can’t open a Shockwave movie directly. The browser can only open a Web page in which the Shockwave movie has been embedded (Figure 17.2). The HTML file for the Web page must contain a link to the embedded Shockwave movie, along with code that tells the browser how to display the movie.

Figure 17.2. To be viewable in a browser, a Shockwave movie must be embedded in an HTML file. The necessary code can be generated by Director itself or by another Macromedia product, Dreamweaver.
