Amazon.com Review

Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio is an essential and excitingupgrade for Web authors who need the latest 3-D capabilities, Flash,and RealMedia support. Version 8.5 of Macromedia's Director hasstrengthened the product's position as a flagship multimedia tool.

The sheer depth and power of Director 8.5 does not hinder beginners,who will find that the streamlined interface and library ofdrag-and-drop behaviors allow them to produce impressive results quickly. Themore experienced user will find that--with more than 800 new commandscovered in well-written documentation--Director's Lingo scriptinglanguage provides good detail and control over interaction anddelivery.

Director's new 3-D capabilities are based on Intel technology, and aregeared toward delivering the goods regardless of the user's connectionspeed. It does this by employing technology that automatically changesthe detail of 3-D objects depending on the user's bandwidth and thespeed of his or her computer.

Although Director doesn't really help you create 3-D models--you mustimport these from other third-party applications using the new W3Dformat--once in place, key frame and bones-based animation are employedto bring these models to life. In addition, there are a number ofpresupplied 3-D behaviors, particle effects, and an option to renderwith a flat, cartoon-style look. All these factors combine to giveDirector some powerful new moves that will undoubtedly be of enormousinterest to 3-D developers.

Director 8.5 supports two other important Web technologies that furtheradd to its versatility. RealMedia is now supported, allowing the authorto rotate, scale, and skew clips while they are playing. Flash supporthas been updated to version 5, and, with its improved integration, youcan now control Flash media within Director by using Lingo.

Other new and extremely useful features of Director 8.5 ShockwaveStudio include support for XML data and better multiuser serversupport. This includes new server-side scripting and an increase in thenumber of concurrent users to 2,000, which will enable rich andimmersive multiuser experiences.

Game developers and specialists in Web-based interaction willundoubtedly benefit from these new features, which now make Director anessential choice for multiuser, interactive, and online experiences.--John Bloor

Amazon.com Review

Macromedia's Dreamweaver MX is a topflight Web editor for dynamic sitesas well as static pages. Dreamweaver's excellent visual tools generate code thatworks across all the leading Web browsers, winning it the respect ofprofessionals. Its availability on the Mac as well as Windows is another strongfeature for designers. The product is also extensible, with a huge range ofthird-party add-ons available from Macromedia's Web site, many of them free ofcharge. There is great support for Internet standards, including cascading stylesheets, XHTML, and accessibility features. Built-in validating mechanisms makeit easy to check a page, and everything is highly configurable so you canspecify the standards you want to support.

This is a visual editor, which means you can create and edit a Web page byselecting items such as tables, forms, and images from a tabbed palette. TheProperties panel lets you specify details such as borders, styles, andhyperlinks, and you can also use the visual editor for frames and layers. Manydesigners also like to edit the underlying HTML, and this is where DreamweaverMX comes into its own. It supports either a pure code view or a split view thatlets you click seamlessly between the code and visual editors. A lot of thefeatures previously found in HomeSite, Macromedia's text-based Web editor, arenow integrated into Dreamweaver, including pop-up code hints, a snippets panelthat lets you keep handy pieces of code for reuse, and a tag chooser that letsyou grab the right tag from a list. An O'Reilly tag reference is built in.

Dreamweaver's template support deserves special mention. Templates give you aquick start with a number of predesigned pages. In Dreamweaver MX, they can alsobe used to lock down areas of the page, so that contributors can create and edita story without disturbing the design. Templates can be nested so that changesto an underlying template ripple through the pages that use it for powerfulsite-wide updates.

Macromedia used to market a product called Dreamweaver UltraDev, which allowedfor rapid development of Web applications featuring online databases, memberlogin, and other server-side elements. In Dreamweaver MX, this capability isbuilt in. It has also been extended, adding support for ASP.NET and PHP as wellas ColdFusion, JavaServer pages, and traditional ASP. Nonspecialists will findthemselves able to build rich dynamic pages, while the integrated code editormakes this a capable development product as well. In fact, Dreamweaver MX hasalso replaced ColdFusion Studio as the primary development tool for ColdFusionMX. It is a uniquely flexible package.

Overall, it's hard to find fault with Dreamweaver MX. It's true that itscomplexity and professional features make it harder to pick up than some rivalproducts. The abundance of panels and options can be confusing, and ahigh-resolution screen is required. In addition, the Studio MX products, whichinclude Dreamweaver, are a better value for those who need more than one of theMX series. However, this takes nothing away from the excellence of Dreamweaveras the first-choice tool for professionals. --Tim Anderson ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars much better than earlier versions
Earlier versions of DW were almost unusably buggy. Crashed every hour, and i'd discover new bugs every time i ran it. I'd report them and never see them listed as fixed bugs. Spent most of my time switching over to BBEdit to clean up the mess. This new version seems much less buggy so far - crashes are rare. (Of course that might be due in part to running it under OSX instead of OS9, but...) It still creates weird code at times, and has some other annoyances, but i have no serious complaints yet. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars If I could give 0 stars I would.
No one running Mac OS X should buy this product until the bugs are worked out.

Some of the more annoying Fireworks MX bugs:

Eyedropper - when selecting a color, selects the inverse of that color, so you have to select the color, then select it again to get the correct color.

Crop - If you set up your canvas to delete objects when cropping and then crop your document, it won't delete objects.

Text - You cannot copy and/or paste text into or out of the program

Those are all I can think of right now... but these are not all the bugs, I run into more and more every day.

DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM. It's not worth it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very buggy software, but does the job
Another half-baked update. Macromedia really needs to go back to the drawing board and put out some maintenance updates. On the good side, we have OS X versions of these web design mainstay apps (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash); on the bad side, they are so buggy that one wonders if OS 9 was really that bad at all. Overall, DW on my G4/733 feels slower than 4.01 did on a G3/333.

For example, the behavior of dragging the panels on the right side is very inconsistant. E.g., when attempting to resize the CSS panel to be longer to show more styles in my file, the cursor often does not turn into the double-headed arrow to indicate dragability; or the cursor disappears completely; dragging sometimes works, but more often doesn't. Or, when in code view, dragging across text to select results in a nasty redraw problem, with the code flashing on and off in rapid succession until you've stopped dragging. It's like the document is having an epilectic seizure.

And why haven't they put in a simple window split function? BBEdit has had this for years. They boast about how bit-chin' their HTML code view is, but jeeze, it leaves a lot to be desired (and no, I don't think switching to BBEdit should be a solution to that; I think Macromedia should do more than a half-baked job on the code editor, and then most of us wouln't need to bother with BBEdit). Additionally, some of the other bugs were extant in version 4.01. Some things in 4.01 were slow as heck (templates). What I'm seeing so far in MX doesn't bode well.  

5-0 out of 5 stars Too Good To Be Called an "Upgrade..."
MacroMedia has exceeded expectations with Studio MX! The newest items -- DreamWeaver MX, FireWorks MX, and Flash MX -- have been renovated to feature a much more consistent, intuitive user experience, slick graphical interface (at least under Mac OSX), and expanded capabilities and features.

So much has been added in features and experience that to call this a mere 'upgrade' is short changing the work done here. DW features all of the features from UltraDev, plus support for the free PHP, demonstrating their renewed confidence in the power of ColdFusion (dev version included w/Windows version of Studio MX), not to mention added support for ASP.NET. Those who loved Allaire's HomeSite will appreciate its integreation into the DW interface itself.

FireWorks is a beautiful application that makes PhotoShop pros feel more at home without feeling like they're using a 2nd rate knock off (like older versions of FW). Creating interacive images is much easier than ever -- some of this stuff you can just 'figure out', perhaps with a bit of guidance from the extensive online help system.

Flash: Wow! It has no competition now, and its intergration with FH10 is fabulous. These two pieces alone make for the most powerful vector-based dev environment on the planet. Crucial, considering the exodus from Raster/bit map images on the web.

Bravo MacroMedia! This stuff is so good, I have no idea what you'll do next! (But, please, may I suggest ColdFusion MX for Mac OSX?) ... Read more

Building graphics for a Web site often involves the use of several different tools: one for building vector-based images, one for bitmapped images, and still another for incorporating these images into an HTML document. Macromedia's Fireworks 3.0 is all of thesetools--and more--rolled into one.

Fireworks is designed from theground up to be a Web graphics creation package. It is both a vectordrawing tool and a bitmap graphics editor, and the different graphictypes easily mix on any layer. All objects, whether shapes or text, areeditable at any point of production, offering enormous designflexibility. Fireworks also supports layers for maintaining separateelements, and a history palette which can be used to undo numeroussteps or to create replayable actions.

If creating art withinFireworks isn't appealing, or if you are given material from anotherdesigner, not to worry. Fireworks imports most popular formats(including layered native Photoshop files) and keeps layers intact.Fireworks also supports TWAIN-compliant scanners, making it easy toimport material from the real world.

Most of the palettes and toolsare similar to more popular packages, and most of the expected keyboardcommands are present. But as one begins to use and explore Fireworks,the Web-specific features emerge. The slices tool is for specifying howan image will be broken down for use in building it in an HTML tablematrix. The sweet feature here is that the slices can be exportedautomatically, and there is an option for generating the HTML code aswell that assembles these slices in a table.

The software handles bigfeatures--like optimizing the file size of graphics--well. At any stageduring creation, Fireworks shows dynamic previews of the original file,as well as how it will look compressed to JPEG format or dithered downto GIF format. A statistics bar at the bottom of the window lists thefile size and the probable download time at a given connectionspeed.

Fireworks is a fast and flexible tool for creating Webgraphics, and Macromedia is determined to make it the only Web graphicstool needed by any Web designer. They are certainly on the right track.--Mike Caputo ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars These Fireworks Got Wet!
This may be a powerful software package but it is extremely difficult to learn. The documentation is incomplete and full of errors. The help files utilize some archaic navigation system that renders them useless. I have gotten very little use out of this program because in addition to inadequate tutorials the user interface is not at all intuitive....

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
Adobe and Macromedia have gone to war and it's the consumer who benefits.

Fireworks is one of those nearly perfect programs that come up when there's good, healthy competition among the software companies. Though I'm a long-time Adobe follower, I have to hand it to Macromedia on this one. More powerful and versatile than ImageReady, Fireworks is like a Photoshop LE, Illustrator LE (not that there is such a product), and HTML editor all rolled into one as well as being ambassador between all the graphics and web products you could possibly purchase.

Works as both bitmap editor and vector drawing program as well as hacking out your code if you need it. HTML and pictures will go to any program or from any program.

But Fireworks is more than just the assembly garage (though not having to switch between so many programs and diluting your RAM in the process is NICE). It can handle both types of images more than competently and sometimes even better than Photoshop and Illustrator themselves (not like I'm endorsing those programs here. I just happen to use them also). Live previews as you edit, the wonderful option of being able to undo or change ANYTHING long after the history palette has forgotten all about what you did. Even *filters* (which you can import from PS) are undoable long after they've been first applied. This editability (real word?) is my favorite thing about FW. So flexible and powerful, it's perfect for web designers who constantly change their minds or for that page/ image update you wanna do down the line.

The only minus I've found so far is that you can't redraw or specify the direction you want your gradient to flow. At least I haven't found it so far. Supports PS filters, Illustrator paths, exports to Flash too, and will write code for any one of many HTML editors. A must-have for anyone even remotely serious about web graphics. For those not wanting to spend a fortune on software, this is a more than solid choice and you really can do without the others. There are a lot of choices out there. Make the right one.

Treat yourself and get the FW/ Dreamweaver bundle if you're in the market for an editor also. DW's the best HTML editor, too. Hooray for Macromedia! Adobe will be hard-pressed to keep up. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Macromedia's bundling of Dreamweaver 3 and Fireworks 3 is a tremendous value and a terrific pairing of applications. Fireworks--a versatile and powerful tool for building graphics for Web sites--and Dreamweaver--a tool of choice for building sites of all kinds--are both strong tools on their own. Bundled together, Macromedia has built a versatile and robust Web-development environment.

Creating good Web graphics is a skill unto itself, but Fireworks has many built-in tools for easing the pain. File size and color palette compatibility are the key issues, which Fireworks handles gracefully, but it can also create animated graphics as GIF or Flash files, as well as create rollovers and animated buttons.

But Fireworks is much more than a tool for creating Web graphics; it's an excellent graphics package with many of the features a good bitmap image editor possesses, such as gradients, fills, and organic-media strokes. But because Fireworks is vector-based, even strokes using a watercolor brush can be edited later into something like a crayon- or charcoal-style stroke. Fireworks exports files to Adobe Illustrator, JPG, BMP, and GIF formats, as well as to animated GIF or Flash formats.

Fireworks becomes a more powerful tool when allied with Dreamweaver, Macromedia's Web-page authoring tool.
