Using RealMedia content in Director
japanese  korean  deutsch  english  francais 

The Macromedia Director Xtra for RealSystem Streaming Media (Xtra for RealMedia) allows Director developers to add streaming RealMedia content to Director Shockwave movies. With the standard Director controls, cast members and sprites created from RealMedia can be rotated, skewed, stretched, colorized, used as textures for 3D models, and combined with other sprites to create interesting audio and video effects. Lingo programmers can use the new RealMedia-specific Lingo and standard cast member and sprite Lingo to create additional effects. Any content you create using the Xtra for RealMedia can be viewed by users who have RealPlayer 8 and the Shockwave player.
