Developed by Macromedia's own staff, this CD/book package features master teachers from Macromedia demonstrating everything from basic Director skills to Lingo in this cross-platform CD-ROM-based training course.

After finishing this "course," users will be able to create multimedia projects and Shockwave Web sites using Director Multimedia Studio, as well as use Lingo to make their movies interactive. Users can then practice the skills they've learned using the full-featured demo versions of the software and all the files needed, included on the same CD-ROM. The companion book illustrates the step-by-step instructions offered in the interactive training and offers a browsable overview to the content of the CD as an additional reference.Director 6 and Lingo Interactive is now cross-platform and covers both Director 6 and Lingo. This new, expanded edition--still $49.95--is now appropriate for new, intermediate, and advanced intermediate Director users. After mastering the basics of Director, users move on to complete increasingly more advanced tasks, up to and including scripting with Lingo.

If you have read any other book on Director Or of you have done any other work with Director, no matter how small, this book is not for you. To enjoy the book you surely have to be a totall beginner. Unfortunatly I don't think that Macromedia with this book is showing the witdth of Director 6 as a wonderful tool to create dynamic interactive work.

Great for beginning experience at Animation, but for learning lingo more was required. For a more complete comprehensive book, I recommend Director 6 Demystified.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a good book for people not taking in-class lessons 23 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was not happy to see that the book was written for someone who is not receiving instruction in Director (ie. classroom). I found it difficult to find references to specific questions. The book seemed to follow a set of lessons thus making it difficult to find a specific topic. This, of course, is only one person's opinion. If you already have some exposure to Director, you will probably want something geared more toward reference, not lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Teaching Approach 27 Jan 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have never had time to read all these 600 page books that are supposed to teach you how to do everything and the thought of reading it all is insane! This is a completely interactive tutor that will show you what everything in the User Interface does and has sample files and a CD ROM that will include sample files and trial versions of macromedia software.. There are 2 CD's one for Windows and one for Mac. If your a beginner and like the interactive approach buy this book now!
1.0 out of 5 stars the software didn't work 20 July 1998
By srowe@inven.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Doesn't work correctly on my win 95/nt machine. Says it doesn't detect quicktime (which is installed) and to rerun the installer again (which I have). I try to run the software anyway and get errors such as "can't divide by zero" and then it jumps to the end of the lesson. Can't find any answers or help at either macromedia.com or peachpit. So I'm left without the "interactive part" which is the whole reason I bought it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! A must for beginners! 29 Nov 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I (luckily) shelled out $50 for this at the bookstore and it really brought me up to speed. Nothing compares to the interactive learning approach. I already spend numerous hours studying the interface and things you can do with Director using a couple other books. But after only 2 hours with this interactive course. I put the books down. A must for beginners!
