The Cool Thing: Shockwave 3D is a revolutionary new technology that allows 3D developers and designers to expand the bounds of their creativity. Software vendors can deliver "cutting-edge," rich 3D applications and content that will scale in performance, without fear of missing key market segments, from entry-level users to power-hungry enthusiasts.
The Catch: Lingo's steep learning curve has made the application of Shockwave too burdensome for many developers.
The Solution: Jason Wolf, a co-creator of Shockwave technology, gets you up to speed with this clearly written and practical book. Shockwave 3D gives you a software overview and then gets you quickly up to speed with accessible step-by-step instructions. Even traditional 3D designers new to Lingo programming will quickly learn how to export 3D scenes into Director, add interactive behavior, and publish content on the Internet. More advanced developers will appreciate the extensive Havok Lingo chapter and ray-casting examples, in addition to the numerous best practices.
