Chapter 18. Shockwave 3D

Chapter 18. Shockwave 3D

One of Director’s newer features is the ability to include 3D cast members in Director movies. At the time this feature was introduced (in Director 8.5, the version preceding Director MX), it was considered revolutionary, and it remains cutting-edge even now. It’s rare to find 3D of any sort on the Web, and by making it a component of Shockwave, Macromedia has taken a big step toward bringing 3D into the mainstream. More important, Director’s implementation of 3D is fully interactive, allowing users to move and control 3D objects in ways that were formerly found chiefly in sophisticated video games (Figure 18.1).
