  Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio

 I am going to skip on past the 'Installation' part of my review because as per usual there were no real issues with the installation and there is more import info to be mentioned in this limited space.

Lets cover some of the great new features.....

RealNetworks RealAudio and RealVideo Support Real Audio and real Video can now be streamed and used as assets in Director Movies. You can use even use Director's audio and video rendering capabilities to have precision control over your streaming media content.

Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio supports Macromedia Flash 5, allowing developers to take advantage of all the new features of both of these popular applications.

Building community on a Web site is becoming an essential component for e-commerce, technical support, online learning and customer service. The Shockwave Multiuser Server provides an efficient way for developers to add community to their Shockwave content. Now communication is faster with multiuser Shockwave content, for faster collaboration and real-time gaming. Previously, the Shockwave multiuser server offered only TCP support, but it now offers UDP support as well, and allows developers to specify which protocol to use. Shockwave Multiuser Server 3 doubles the number of simultaneous users, to up to 2000, that the Shockwave Multiuser Server can support.

Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio has widespread support in the 3D industry. Leading providers of 3D software tools and content services use the 3D-enhanced Shockwave Player as a primary delivery platform for the Web. This means that developers can use their favorite tools and systems to create 3D content, then bring their 3D content into Director to author streaming, multiuser, interactive Web content, then distribute the results via Shockwave Player.
