Misovich An Introduction to Interactive Multimedia

An Introduction to Interactive Multimedia provides multimedia beginners with a hands-on overview of four popular multimedia applications used in education and business: PowerPoint, Director, Flash, and JavaScript.

KEY TOPICS:  For each of the four applications (PowerPoint, Macromedia Director, Macromedia Flash, and JavaScript), An Introduction to Interactive Multimedia provides a chapter describing the capabilities of the application and a sample of what it can produce. This chapter is especially useful for readers who are trying to decide what software to use for a specific project. A second chapter for each program describes its "operating system:" the tools readers will use to create their multimedia presentations. Finally, the third chapter provides a step-by-step procedure for producing a high-impact multimedia object.  MARKET: Anyone interested in learning to use these four applications.
