Product description

From the Author

Out of print
Sad to say, this book is now out of print, though you might find copies around ... and I'm sure the good people at Amazon can find one for you. Learning to program is tough and, judging by the comments I've gotten, LL works for many.

I am working on a V6.5 update which may or may not be published. (Addison-Wesley has changed direction due to the recent merger with Longman.)

From the Back Cover

This title is now out of printMacromedia's® Director® is the application of choice for professional multimedia developers. In order to garner the its potential you need to master Lingo(TM), the powerful programming language behind Director. To produce a top-quality multimedia spectacle you must learn programming principles and constructs as well as Lingo's commands. Lingo is the key--freeing you from the frame-by-frame rigidity of the score to allow you to make truly interactive movies.

Michael Callery takes you on a guided tour through the backstage of Director providing you with the knowledge and skills necessary to create a truly interactive piece. He supplies the information to move beyond film loops, tempo commands, and color cycling. Three projects are introduced, constructed, and examined, illustrating a variety of practical programming techniques. The CD-ROM contains all of the examples found in the book in both Macintosh® and Windows® formats.

This book is divided into four sections. Section One focuses on the basics: loops, conditionals, and variables. Moving ahead, Section Two takes these concepts one step further, exploring puppets--objects controlled by Lingo. Section Three focuses on data: words, numbers, lists, and files. Section Four presents advanced topics, including Digital Video, interface items such as menus and windows, and using external commands.

Format: Paperback
Although this book was written for Director 4, I'm currently using 6.0 and haven't found any instances where I've had to translate anything. The great thing about this book is the way the author describes how to do just about anything with a one-frame movie. This is perfect for those interested in putting shockwave movies on the web for it greatly cuts down on the memory used. I didn't know a thing about Director, much less Lingo, when I got this book. It's an excellent manual and I'd recommend it to anyone!

With friendly prose and a classromm like atmosphere, this book quickly becomes a Lingo newbie's best friend. Starting from the very basics of programming and going up into the advanced topics at your own pace, Lingo is quickly and easily learnable and all scripts and examples are adaptable to real world situations. Using this book, I created a multimedia resume (complete with games), sent it around and got a job as a multimedia specialist. It was the best money I ever spent.

After I open this book, I could easily follow up
what the author emphasizes. This book proved the
author has so much experience in teaching students
about Lingo. Hence, you can feel comfortable when
you leaf through pages all the way. I have read
"Easy Lingo". Compared to the book "Easy Lingo",
this book really teaches you with consistent and
well prepared examples. Yes, this book also explains Lingo commands dealing databases and file
I/O.

I was disappointed. There was no reference to the fact that this book was for Director 4.04. The latest revision of Director is 6.0. I had to translate every statement pertaining to the changes made in Director. A lot of Lingo concepts and syntax have either been added or changed since 4.04 was the standard.
