The products examined in these case studies include smash hits and market leaders like Myst, the 7th Guest, and Hotwired, plus many award-winning products.Readers learn how successful developers have used techniques such as motion capture and performance animation technology, blue-screen photography, live-action video, Web animation, texture mapping, QuickTime VR, and 3D modeling. These developers reveal which software and hardware they rely on and which they've abandoned; original tricks and hacks for overcoming limitations; technical roadblocks and sinkholes; and insights on why some of their products have failed and others have succeeded phenomenally.Interactivity in Action also provides firsthand advice on key business issues. The companion CD-ROM features demos of several case study products plus sample code from some products, including HTML coding, Java applets, Director Lingo scripts, and more.
