Melissa Fisher asked about the
"...difference between Macromedia's Director and Authorware products."
I've been using Authorware for a little over a month, so I'm not the
world's greatest authority on it by any means. But I can tell you what
the manual says:
"[Use] Director to create multimedia movies for use in Authorware
"Authorware is designed to allow the teacher or trainer to create
intuitive multimedia learning materials. With Authorware you can combine
graphics, text, sound, and digital movies that you've created with other
applications in the Authorware Interactive Studio."
'Hope this helps you out.
