Summary Included with the book is a Windows and Macintosh compatible CD-ROM that demonstrates every multimedia project covered, as well as the full text of the book. You'll be able to see, hear, and experience the full potential of multimedia, through the sounds, animation, illustrations, and audio of the featured applications
The Multimedia Casebook describes how a dozen real-world multimedia applications - entertainment, business, and education titles - were created. Unlike dry, technical how-to books, these richly detailed case studies draw you into the creative process, enabling you to retrace the steps that transform a good idea into a successful project. Included are little-discussed but vital topics such as client-developer relations, team building, marketing, and finance, as well as design philosophy and technical problem solving. Along the way, you'll meet a diverse group of industry pioneers and glimpse the very human side of multimedia, including the joys and setbacks of bringing these projects to life
