A veritable multimedia bible, this book takes both Mac and Windows users through a discussion of current multimedia hardware and software and describes the elements of video, audio, graphics, and animation, leading up to guidance on polishing and delivering professional multimedia projects. Vaughan provides case studies of successful multimedia companies and projects along the way. This third edition improves upon the previous edition by discussing Web production and such tools as Macromedia Shockwave, RealAudio, VRML, and JavaScript. It comes with two hybrid CDs with demos and trial versions of such tools as Macromedia Director and FreeHand. Highly recommended for anyone making his or her way through the field of multimedia production.
