Director-8-Workshop : professionelle Multimedia-Produktion by Gerd Gillmaier; Joachim Gola

By Gerd Gillmaier; Joachim Gola

Quick sind die Begriffe Multimedia-Authoring und Macromedia Director Synonyme geworden. Fest steht, dass ein großer Teil an Multimedia-Produktionen mit Director programmiert wird. Director ist ein mächtiges, aber durchaus auch kapriziöses instrument, das beherrscht werden will. Von model zu model sind die Möglichkeiten ständig erweitert worden, auch die Ansprüche steigen. Die neueste model, Director eight, erweitert die Möglichkeiten wiederum mit neuen (und verbesserten) Funktionen. All dies verlangt vom Entwickler anspruchsvoller Produktionen ein Wissen, das nicht nur nahe der Oberfläche verharrt, sondern in die Tiefe geht. Die Programmiersprache von Director, Lingo, ist nur ein Teil von dem, das beherrscht werden sollte. Und hier setzt der Director eight Workshop von Gerd Gillmaier und Joachim Gola an. Neben einem kurzen Crashkurs sind fortgeschrittene Themen zu finden. Das Buch richtet sich somit an all Jene, die bereits Erfahrungen mit Director gemacht haben und nun Lösungen zu speziellen Problemen suchen oder generell in die Entwicklung mit Director aufsteigen wollen. Auf nahezu seven hundred Seiten werden neben vielen Lingo-Listings auch die verschiedenen Arten der Einbindung von Medien vorgestellt. Die Anbindung von Datenbanken, die Anpassung an die verschiedenen Plattformen, Xtras und Erweiterungen zu Director sind weitere breit angelegte Themen. Es gibt sogar ein (leider nur recht kurzes) Kapitel, das auf die Projektorganisation eingeht. Und natürlich finden sich eingehende Informationen darüber, wie die erstellten Filme dann geshockt (veröffentlicht) werden. Dem Buch ist die Praxisnähe der Autoren (wer diese nicht ohnehin schon kennt) anzumerken, es glänzt durch die große Breite der Themenvielfalt und die Tiefe der Darstellungen. Schade nur, dass an der Darstellung der Inhalte gespart wurde (die Aufmachung ist nicht so erfreulich wie der Inhalt). Wohl kein Buch für Anfänger, dem Aufsteiger und Projektarbeiter jedoch umso mehr zu empfehlen! --Holger Otto
