Software Review: Director 7 Shockwave Internet Studio

Director includes a built-in library of "behaviors" which enable the developer to add and use interactive elements such as navigation, user-interface widgets, custom controls, lists, and timers. These are accessed through the new Director 7 Library palette (See Figure 1), and added to your Director movie by simply dragging them to the Director Stage or Cast library. Depending on the behavior, you may have to add some parameters which indicate the specifics of the behavior, but it's a simple matter of filling in a field in a pop-up window.

Our next task was to take a look at Fireworks, Macromedia's graphics solution for Web developers. We previously reviewed Fireworks and weren't too impressed, but the latest version of Director comes with some significant improvements which will increase your reasons for using Fireworks. This release of Director now supports JPEG files (as well as animated GIFs and PNG files) internally; Shockwave has supported external JPEGs for a while now, but the browser overhead and delay didn't really encourage their use.
