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I am working on a V6.5 update which may or may not be published.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 CoverThis 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.
