Appendix A: Integrating Flash with Director
Director is starting to make a more significant impact on the Internet with the addition of Shockwave 3D. As an experienced Flash developer you will probably find it easier to control the 3D world using a Flash interface. In this appendix you will find an introduction to controlling a 3D world using Flash.
As I write, Director MX 2004 is the latest version. Director MX 2004 can import Flash MX 2004 or below movies. This appendix will use two examples; the first is available at ‘Examples\AppendixA\boxesinterface.fla’ on the CD. This simple example uses just two buttons. One button is labelled ‘Add Box’ and the other ‘Remove Box’. Each has a very simple ActionScript attached to the release event.
