Java Animation

by Joe Gillespie — Jul 1, 1998

Java animation can be virtually anything you want it to be but has been considerably more difficult to produce until recently.

One of the features of Director 6.5 is that, as well as Shockwave, it can export animations as Java applets complete and ready to run without any special plug-ins.

Most of my experience with Java has been bad. On a Mac, or with Windows NT, it is either pitifully slow, doesn't work or crashes the computer. I keep it permanently switched off. Digg Technorati Blinklist Furl reddit Design Float
