5-0 out of 5 stars This book is great.
this book is great - it is not too advanced for beginners. It walks you through director setup, but also allows for you to skip to the more advanced stuff. Its a great book for any level and is engaging, and an easy read. I recomend it strongly.

3-0 out of 5 stars Almost good
This book is good...but i would really like it it has a little more picture on the steps.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY HELPFUL!
having learned the basics of director in a class was a good start to the program, but being the MONSTER that director is, a 'beginner' like myself, definitely needs the extra help.This book is relatively easy to understand, (relative because the program itself is just so complex), and is thorough.I found solutions for problems in the book that I could not find on the Macromedia website!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Director MX Book!
This is a great reference book - the author says it is not really meant to be read all the way through and it is described asnot for beginners, but I think any Director user except perhaps the most advanced could benefit from this book either as a reference or complete read or both. I especially like all of the side notes scattered throughout the book, plus the troubleshooting and Did You Know? sections at the end of each chapter. His descriptions of some components of Lingo were the first I've read that I really understood. He also includes 7 bonus chapters and a Lingo reference on the CD! This book is packed with info, and even though it is now one version of Director behind the current one, I still recommend having it on your reference shelf. If you really use Director for either work or play, you won't regret it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Listen to me..... its the words of wisdom
I really don't have to get into detail. This is the book you want to have when you need something to go back on and read. This is the 1st book that helped me the most i only used 4 books but this one was the one that made me go back and read up again and me as a person that hates to read, I learn a ton of stuff from this very book. I'm telling you right now no one here can tell you all the details this one book has but if you pick it up and read it you will see for your self that this book is worth more then it cost. He even has a mixure of games inside the cd its crazy. This book chills in my back pack when i need some lingo codes and which im back in director for the 3d field im just useing it to bring back the old codes which this book holds. All i can tell you is that this is a great book for director and perhaps one of the best i have encounter you won't regrate it trust me on that.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD BOOK
This book states it's the only Director MX book you will ever need ... well, it's TRUE.Buy it, you will not be disappointed.Director is a great tool.Especially if you have a programming background, you will embrace the power of Lingo to create multimedia applications.This book shows some of the best Lingo examples I have seen up to now in Director books.It's good as a learning book and it's equally good as a reference book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars ok lets be serious
Okay i cant lie, this book helped me out during my noob years while learning Director. Its not for the hardcore users that already have a great and powerful background. If your new to director mx then this is for you no questions ask. It teachs all the basic stuff that you will need to understand how director works.

I found this book to be exactly what I needed to get started with Director. I had very little background with flash/shockwave, etc, and this book helped me get the start I needed.

The Art of the Documentary
5-0 out of 5 stars Nonfiction documentaries reveal the methods and focus their directors
Megan Cunningham's Art Of The Documentary offers ten conversations with some of the best documentary directors, editors and producers in the industry. Nonfiction documentaries reveal the methods and focus their directors, which is captured in chapters which begin with project concept and move through the entire production process. Plenty of color photos illustrate each director's works.
5-0 out of 5 stars Mentors Supplied
Ever wanted Ken Burns or others in the pantheon of documentary greats as your personal film making mentor?This book gives you that and more. This versatile book is as perfect for someone just starting out in documentary films as it is for a veteran who wants in on a few secrets of the masters.Our film production company read from it aloud on location and everyone, from the producer to the cinematographer to the researchers, all gleaned practical tips from it.The interviews are substantive, insightful and most importantly, very useful.A real keeper for those interested in learning nuances and techniques from a wide range of documentary styles. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great games.... ;)
I've been developping applications and amateur games for a few years using C++... I bought this book along with the Director Bible... And guess what? I made a shoot'em up game in a couple of days - with the help of my brother (graphic designer - thanks for your beautiful sprites, dud! ;) )... Director + Lingo are the best way for quick games... and this book just show me how!!!
5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing springboard!
Gary has done the Lingo community an amazing service. With code and logic examples that illustrate nearly every variety of game you can create to be played on a computer, this book is an incredible resource.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
I have a programming background and am learning Director to make professional CD products. Gary has taught me how to do this with his Using Director 8.5 book and this Advanced Lingo for Games book. He writes very well, doesn't treat you like an idiot, and is very practical. Well done Gary and I recommend this book to all people who really want to make interactive games using Director. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars better books than this
While this might get you started if you've never used director before, it won't get you much further than learning where the buttons are.I was surprised that a manual so think in pages could have so little information. Beware: this company has released and Director 8 version of this sam book but it still contains the same information. If you really want to know anything valuable about Lingo or interactive elements I recommend Using Director 8 by Que publishing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Learning Tool & Reference
I bought this book knowing nothing about Director, but having to learn the program for a class.In the class that I took, we had to purchase Director 7 Authorized, and work the tutorials.I went through both books, and letme tell you - This book is so much better than Authorized!5-0 out of 5 stars from zero to movies in days!
whether you are still confused where that particular sub-menu/pop-up palette/toolbar resides( and director has a zillion of 'em)or you need to figure out how to construct a complex sequence of actions, this book isclear, clean, and often, wryly amusing. I haven't had to open the cd-romyet,as the text/illustrations are so step-by-step concise that even a rawbeginner like me can create the tutorial exercises from scratch, withoutusing the accompanying files. just flipping through the incrediblywell-organized appenixes has taught me more about lingo that I would haveimagined in such a short time, from fully using all the amazing cut &paste features in Director7, to constructing my own code. this book is wellworth the backache of lugging around it's enclyclopedic size, even on theNYC subways! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a tutorial book for beginners
That's right.If you are looking for step by step learning in this text, forget it.What the author does is present several game models on the CD.You examine the game and the code.He does some explanation at a high level of what the code does.There is some basic treatment of explaining what function, variable, and other programming elements are. But not enough for a novis.This may be a good reference text that shows project examples, but it is far from a solid instructional work.If you learn from picking apart examples, then this book is for you.If you want step-by-step explanation with support, then I can not recommend this book. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for starting out
This book has excellent tutorials, but hardcore programmers looking for more of a reference type book are best off skipping right to Paul Catanese's "Director's Third Dimension".

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introductory book on Director 3d
This is a good introductory and intermediate book on Director 3D.5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Book
I write reviews of graphic software and, on occasion, books. Before deciding to review this book, I looked at two or three others that were available at my local book stores on Macromedia 8.5. This was the only one that impressed me. In many ways, this book by Phil and Mike Gross pick up where Phil Gross's Director 8 and Lingo Authorized left off. This book is a training course which will guide the reader into the major areas of 3D programming. While this might sound daunting, it isn't because the lessons are step by step guides. The authors state in their introduction that the first four chapters are intended for 3D designers who want to bring their 3D creations to the web while the remainder of the chapters are for seasoned Director users who want to take advantage of the 3D features of Director 8.5. Even if I did not intend to use the properties of Director 8.5's 3D module extensively, these first lessons would get me started in an orderly and logical fashion because they highlight the basic information necessary to build upon should I desire to go further while giving me clear instruction on how to use basic 3D in a Director movie.Read more

Other reviews have captured the gist of this wonderful, accessible, and thorough treatment of Director's 3D functionality.What I would like to add is that Catanese's book is just as current with Director MX as it is with Director 8.5.5-0 out of 5 stars I got A for my project !
I'm an IT student and possessing VB & C/C++. I have never learn about 3D and Director before. So when I want to make a Director project (game), I need a book!5-0 out of 5 stars AN AMAZING BOOK

2-0 out of 5 stars So So
Okay if you want to learn 3d the fast way in director then this isn't the book for you. The book does in some ways go into detail but then again he also side tracks so this book is not for the new comers. Your suppose to know a few things in director already and also in the lingo area. The whole thing in this book is the lingo part. Its code heavy so you as the reader is suppose to have some sort of back ground in director in order to understand it. Over all its an okay book but not the best.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poorly written
On the outside, this book looks excellent for those wanting to create 3d games in director. On the inside, the book is shallow and un-engaging. Most concepts are covered poorly and are made hard to understand. One of my biggest gripes about this book is how the author tells you "Now lets learn how to make _____", and instead of explaining things, just dumps 4 pages of lingo code on you. I feel that a good book should break down the code and explain what it is doing. Copying a hundred lines of code form a book does not teach you anything. The book is also very dry and a bore to read. I fell asleep several times while reading, no joke. 4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent insight into game conception and design
This is a book of two halves - game programming and game design. At the heart of it is the new Director 3D programming engine, which is a major new addition to the capabilities of the software. Allen Partridge's book is aimed principally at those who are familiar with Director and comfortable with lingo, but may be new to 3D as a whole. The first half of the book goes through the capabilities of the 3d engine in detail, including shaders, lights, textures, physics and vector maths, as well as some insights into using 3D modelling software to its best advantage. The second half looks at the process of creating an actual game, and one of its most valuable features is that the accompanying CD includes the game at many stages of the design process. Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Hard to find exactly what you need
I started reading this book right after "Sams Teach Yourself Macromedia Flash 5 in 24 Hours," and what a disappointment it was. I expected tutorials and step-by-step illustrations. Instead, I got vague hints as to what Director can do (minus examples and pictures). Looking for how to do those things was a daunting task. This book is badly organized. In fact, the author says that information on how to publish your Director file can be found in Chapter 2, Chapter 9...etc. Things are not exactly in one place. I'll go back to using this book when I'm more experienced with Director, but until then, it makes a great flower press.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good for quick reference.
Found this book unhelpful for quick reference to specific problems that needed to be solved.Recommend the Quickstart publisher book for better reference while building.I will still keep it for lingo references in back.Comes with a CD.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for newbies
Want to know how to stop a movie from looping? Not here. How about getting transitions to run smoothly? Nah.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easing the Learning Curve
Director 8.5 is a monster application with huge range of functionality. Nyquist's "Bible" uses CD-ROM-based tutorials to carry you through the concepts with relative ease. The tutorials are part of one continuous complex project, taking the reader from the basics through media management, interactivity, project management and some pretty sophisticated Lingo programming. It is also organized to allow easy reference for specific issues. Having recently completed an 'Emedia & Design' programme I would have to say that Nyquist's book is probably the most valuable text in my library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Beginning Lingo Programmer
The real power of Director is in Lingo, Director's programming language.I have more than 10 books covering Macromedia Director; most are designed for the beginner and intermediate level user. Warren's book is by far the best introduction to programming in Director.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Start
I'm just getting into the world of Director, and this book has been my guide. It is written in an entertaining manner, (thankfully not overly cute,) and is making my learning experience an enjoyable one so far. Each lesson is laid out in an easy to read manner and features quick quizzes through out the text, designed to make sure that the important concepts are driven home. I recommend it for other readers looking to begin their Director education!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Instructor's Text
I am an instructor at a small college in Colorado and find Mr. Ockrassa's text a pleasant resource for my students and myself. I have been working with Director for 5 years and have learned a great deal from his book.He has great examples of how to write effective and efficient code.This is the best example of a technical text I have ever worked with.We can only hope that he writes an intermediate and advanced text as well. ...
