Amazon.com Review

Macromedia is certainly one of the more technologically aggressive of the major software publishers, and now they are one of the first of the big boys (if not the first) to deliver a mainstream application fully compatible with Apple's new operating system, Mac OS X.

Freehand 10 includes numerous new features in three areas: new illustration tools, improved productivity, and multiple output options such as PDF, HTML, and Flash. Freehand 10 also supports the IPTC header file information for services that take advantage of such information, such as Knight Ridder and the Associated Press.

Illustrators will love "true contour gradients," a new feature that helps create the most realistic shading we've seen in a 2-D illustration program. Create gradients of irregular shapes, control the amount of shading at any point, and use multicolor gradients.

Freehand's improved pen tool now looks and behaves exactly the same as it does in Flash and Fireworks. In fact, the whole Freehand interface now looks, feels, and behaves just like other Macromedia products, while still managing to look like whatever platform it's running on. For example, Freehand under Mac OS 9 looks like a classic Mac app, but the same app takes on the Aqua interface when running under OS X.

Freehand 10 targets users who create material for print and the Web. Flash export, in the form of SWF files, has been improved, and conversely, a designer can now import Flash actions and assign them to objects in Freehand. Also, Freehand now has a Flash runtime engine complete with controller panel, so that Flash actions and files destined for SWF export can now be tested within Freehand.

For those who create multiple-page documents, Freehand's Master Pages can be used to manage a 32,000-page document, sharing templates and page attributes while retaining the ability to edit master pages at any time. Child pages update dynamically when a master page is changed.

For Mac OS X users, launching a major app like Freehand without first starting up the Classic environment is a real thrill. The native OS X interface is a nice complement to Freehand, and it makes us anxious to see other Macromedia products running under X. Freehand 10 is an important upgrade for existing users, and for new ones, numerous new features make it easier to learn than ever. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay with 9...or 8
As a long-time Freehand user, MacroMedia continues to disappoint. Hardy anything new, yet commands are different and it is much slower than the previous version (which itself was slower than the previous version).

MacroM has abandoned the print market anyway; I believe this is their last release of FreeHand. Its too bad, since it used to be a fine program.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing!
Simply an amazing work of art. It's actually kind of sad how much Macromedia has us wrapped around it's genius little finger. If you're into vector graphics, this is your buy. Since, Illustrator 10 is bugged and Freehand is compatible with FLash, a new king shall rise.

Amazon.com Review

Dreamweaver UltraDev is an enhanced version of Macromedia'sleading Web-authoring tool. The standout additional feature is dynamiccontent, which is when pages have live links to databases or othertypes of server-side scripting. Most products of this type requireextensive manual coding, but UltraDev has an extensive library ofbuilt-in scripts, called Server Behaviors, that allow even moderatelysophisticated sites to be built with little or no code. Version 4 lookssimilar to its predecessor, but includes important changes that make itmore complete and easier to use.

One of the best new features is the split code and design view, whichlets you edit either the code or the visual design and see changesinstantly echoed between them. There is also built-in security, so youcan create login procedures and password-protected sites. Finally, theLive Objects wizards automatically create page elements to handlecommon tasks, such as a master/detail page set, or forms to insert andupdate records.

UltraDev supports three kinds of server-side scripting: Active ServerPages, JavaServer Pages, and Cold Fusion. Unfortunately, it does notsupport PHP, which is popular on Linux and Unix servers, althoughbecause UltraDev is extensible, there may be some third-party add-ins.The features for the three models are similar but not identical,although in every case there is excellent database support. Its greatstrength is that you can focus on designing your pages and let UltraDevhandle the data access code. You can even display live data at designtime, making it easier to get exactly the right appearance.

Everything in Dreamweaver is also in UltraDev, so this is the idealpackage for Web authors who need to add dynamic content with a minimumof fuss.

About Fireworks 4:

Fireworks is a dedicated Web graphics application. You can create bothvector and bit-map images, optimize them for Web pages, and addnumerous special effects for export direct to HTML.

The starting point is a familiar range of drawing and painting tools,such as shapes, lines, brushes, pens, and selection tools. In thedefault vector mode they create editable, scalable objects, and inbit-map mode they paint pixels. Fireworks supports layers andmasks--virtual overlaid surfaces that you can edit independently, enablingdesigners to achieve a wide range of effects. For example, you can varyopacity and blending to fine-tune the final appearance. Other Fireworkspanels include color, stroke, fill, and effects. There is also alibrary panel where you can store graphic elements for reuse.

A key feature for Web designers is optimization. Fireworks offersmaximum control over the critical tradeoff between quality and size. Atwo-up and four-up view lets you compare the quality of original andoptimized versions, using techniques such as reducing color depth andremoving unused colors. The software offers strong support for GIF,JPEG, and PNG image formats. Fireworks also lets you create animationthat is exported as an animated GIF. It will also generate JavaScriptto produce image rollovers and, in this new version, pop-up menus.There is great support for hotspots and slices, techniques for mappingor dividing an image to support HTML features. Integration withMacromedia's Dreamweaver 4 is better than ever in version 4 ofFireworks. Dreamweaver UltraDev 4/Fireworks Studio combines the twoproducts at a lower price. You can export to Dreamweaver--or launchFireworks directly from Dreamweaver--edit an image, and save it backwith all Fireworks-specific information preserved. --TimAnderson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply THE best web dev combination
DreamWeaver Rocks. Fireworks Rocks. Together they make for a spectacular web design/development combination.

Dreamweaver is packed with features for the beginner through advanced web developer; it's easy and intuitive to use. It may take you a while to learn all the capabilities, but with each successive feature you discover and master, the development process becomes easier and faster.

Fireworks is the best in class web graphics software. It integrates very well with DreamWeaver. Creating animated GIFs is a snap, as is image optimization (file compression), image map creation, and exploring full tables (HTML and all!) for use in DreamWeaver.

You simply cannot go wrong with this package. Photoshop still has its place, but if you focus exclusively on the web and don't need to do exquisite image editing this bundle is all you need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome
I've been doing web development since 1996 and, to be honest, I fought tooth and nail against giving up Windows Notepad as my web development tool of choice. Microsoft FrontPage really ruined web development software for me and I pretty much vowed to avoid such applications in the future. Fortunately, my boss insisted that I use Dreamweaver and even sent me off to classes to learn the nuts and bolts. And now I'm hooked.

Dreamweaver is simply awesome and I can't imagine ever going back. Whether your a novice or professional, you'll come to love Dreamweaver's simple interface and ability to tackle otherwise tedious tasks -- such as Cascading Style Sheets, tables, layers -- with ease. Adding Flash, Shockwave or Java is as simple as it can possibly be. I took classes on Dreamweaver, but only because my boss insisted. The software is pretty easy to learn, though those with web development experience will have a fuller understanding (and respect) for the capabilities of the product.

The single most powerful part of Dreamweaver is the use of templates, which allow you to use the same look and feel across multiple pages and have all those pages updated when you make changes to the template. This alone will save you hours!

Another great thing about Dreamweaver is that creates clean HTML. This is something that any developer who has ever had to edit the HTML directly will respect -- especially if you've ever tried to make sense of FrontPage HTML nonsense.

Finally, the FTP application in Dreamweaver is outstanding. It keeps track of every page, graphic, link, etc. in your site and any change to any of them is cascaded through the entire site -- automatically updating links where necessary. With a simple click of a button your site is uploaded to your webserver.

There are so many features I haven't covered, but with the little I have this product is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stupidly Discontinued!
Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4. They have turned this once great web design package into a hybrid cross of something that looks like Netscape/Flash and called it Dreamweaver MX 2004.

I used Dreamweaver MX 2004 for a month, uninstalled it and went back to Dreamweaver 4. It really is that terrible and the work space is terribly cluttered making it very hard to work within.

Bottom Line -- Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 instead if you can find it. Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 is a very good web design package that knocks Dreamweaver MX 2004 for ten. You will simply hate Dreamweaver MX 2004 when you install it on your system. I nearly barfed after a month of using that *new* completely hostile and non-user friendly piece of unstable and slow excuse for a web design software program.

Get this instead ... if you can find it...

5-0 out of 5 stars Review for Dreamweaver 5
-This review is for Dreamweaver 5- I absolutely love this software. I had Adobe Go Live but I never seemed to take to it like I did with Dreamweaver. Once it was installed within a day, I had made several webpages. As I continued to use it I learned more and more intuitively without needing much guidance from the manual. As a user you can create your webpages visually or in code mode, this makes it a great option for anyone no matter what your skill - it can be adjusted to suit your needs. You can learn and develop your webpage skills as much or as little as you like. You do not need to be intimidated by it's high price. You can learn it and the cost is well worth the output. ...
I don't have to look for anything else, I have hit paydirt with this program! If you are using Front Page or any other visual interface for ease, you know that you are trapped into a forced format, get this program and you will understand the freedom of control without fear!

Amazon.com Review

Macromedia is on a mission to make Director the most used authoring tool for building exciting, interactive content not only for CD-ROM presentations but for the Web as well. The new version of Director, 8.0, is totally geared toward reaching that goal.

This is not the first version of Director to offer integrated Web authoring features, but Macromedia has refined Director into a streamlined production environment capable of outputting to a variety of formats.

Improved sound controls include behaviors linked to objects for building immersive audio tracks. This includes more precise audio control over multiple audio streams, including better management of looping tracks. Many file types can be imported, among them AIFF, WAV, SND, and MP3.

The Property Inspector is a new window for editing properties of a sprite or other member. The window changes according to which element is currently selected and shows properties for that selected member. If more than one member is selected, the Inspector reveals only the common properties.

Also new is Runtime Imaging, for what is essentially on-the-fly rendering of images. This results in rich and exciting graphics without the overhead of a large download. Developers also have control now over off-screen compositing, onscreen effects, and transitions. All of this is controllable through Lingo commands.

New Web-specific features include Publish, a command for saving to streaming Shockwave files using HTML templates; and Loader movies, for creating small looping movies that play while the body of the Shockwave file is downloading. Also, Shockwave content can now be resized while maintaining its aspect ratio in a browser window.

Numerous tweaks and enhancements make this release of Director an important tool for the interactive-content creator. If your interactive projects are now being delivered through more avenues than just CD-ROM, Director 8 can help pave the road. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Since Macromedia launched Flash in 1996, it has grown into the de factostandard for development and delivery of high-impact, visually rich, interactiveWeb content. Flash MX promises a similar generational shift to the oneexperienced when Flash 5's enhanced ActionScript introduced an unprecedenteddegree of interactivity to the Web.

The most exciting new features in this version are those aimed at e-contentdevelopers and programmers. Integration with application servers such asColdFusion MX and Microsoft's .NET and Internet protocols like HTML, WebTV, andWAP make it possible to deliver Flash content to a range of platforms--from PCsto PlayStations to mobile phones.

But Flash MX also offers plenty to those who aren't part of a large team ofdesigners and programmers developing corporate sites. Novice users can takeadvantage of a range of prebuilt, customizable components, including scrollbars, buttons, list and combo boxes, and QuickStart templates for presentations,photo albums, ads, and more, making it possible to achieve great resultsquickly.

The Flash MX interface is now consistent with Dreamweaver and Fireworks. Nestedlayer folders and improved cursor feedback for frame adjustment make thetimeline more manageable, and the context-sensitive properties panel andcollapsing, dockable panels reduce screen clutter considerably. Vector drawingtools, one of Flash's weaknesses, have been largely overlooked, but there is anew Free Transform tool, which combines rotate, scale, and skew options. Video,another Flash weak spot, has fared much better with the inclusion of theSorensen Spark video codec. Users can import a variety of formats, includingMPEG, DV, and QuickTime. In addition, users can animate and script AVI and videoclip objects in the same way as bit maps, even using them on a mask layer.

Flash MX is backwards-compatible with version 5 (meaning users can publishversion 5 SWF files, although MX SWF files require the MX player), removing theonly argument for not upgrading. Those not yet convinced of the merits of Flashneed only look around. --Ken McMahon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Host of new tools makes this indispensable
Since this is a upgrade version let me talk for experienced flash users - Macromedia seems to have taken a few right steps in integrating Flash MX with its other products like Dreamweaver Ultradev and Cold Fusion Server MX (acquired from Allaire). Even though Cold Fusion MX is at a beta 3 stage right now, its easy to see some of the powerful multimedia features being integrated into the Macromedia products based on that.

Some of the best new changes in Flash MX that warrant an upgrade are:

1. ActionScript, the scripting language that powers Flash interactivity, is now easier to write and analyze. Flash MX has a fully functional script editor with features similar to those found in its other programs like Dreamweaver, Cold Fusion Studio, and HomeSite. The editor helps both experienced and beginning programmers write valid ActionScript by providing code-hinting, auto-formatting, and search-and-replace functions. Flash MX also contains a complete debugger.

2. For the first time Flash is offering a collection of templates to simplify the production of standard Web documents such as ads, slide shows, and tutorials. In addition, the templates are smart; for example, a photo album template includes all the programming necessary for a photo slideshow.

3. A lot of UI components, like scroll bars, check boxes, and list boxes, that previously had to be laboriously created, are now included in Flash MX. The appropriate behaviors are built into these objects, so adding functional interface elements to an application is a simple drag-and-drop operation.

3. One of the biggest changes in Flash MX is the integration of video. The integrated video support, provided by the Sorenson Spark codec, can import standard video formats, such as AVI, MPEG, or QuickTime, and convert them to a streaming format that is displayed natively by the Flash MX player. The import filter can also resize the video or sync the frame rate to the Flash movie when converting a file.

4. Flash MX also provides a powerful tool to modify vector shapes. Flash's Free Transform tool is similar to the Free Transform tools found in standard illustration programs like FreeHand and Illustrator. The program lets you rotate, size, skew, and distort objects. A special bounding box-called an envelope-lets you manipulate an object's shape using control points and tangent handles. This kind of makes me wonder what it'll do to the already overpriced Macromedia Freehand software.

5. A lot of changes have been made to animation processes to make it more efficient. The import filter for Fireworks PNG files now intelligently preserves text and vector shapes which will make life a lot easier! Headline animations are easier to update, because Flash now maintains individual characters as editable text rather than as nontext vector shapes.

6. Some changes have changed the visual appearance of Flash MX workspace. Now you can dock and collapse palettes, and you have the ability to define and switch between different palette configurations like developer, designer etc. to optimize the workspace for design or coding. Layers can be organized into folders. The new Properties Inspector offers an easy way to change an object's basic attributes quickly.

7. The Library function has also been improved by allowing sharing of symbols between documents. Flash automatically tracks the original location of each symbol and auto-updates all instances in all documents if the original is modified!

As I mentioned, Macromedia seems to be moving towards integrating their other products. As a result, some powerful new features in Flash MX await the development of other products in the MX line. Macromedia has already announced Flash Server Solutions, which will consist of a gateway and a communications server. The latter will allow developers to add real-time messaging as well as two-way audio and video to Flash applications.

I think upgrading to the new version is not even a question!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Web Software EVER
Developers: Get this software.
This is probably far and away the best and biggest advance in web development out there today. The jump from Flash 5 to MX is enormous. Flash MX has broad capabilities. From static movie based websites to Forms and data entry, to full applciations created with backend Java/ASP/JSP integration.

If you have flash 5, you'll never look back when you see this software package. If you're new to Flash all together this is the place to start.

Create web applications using templates and 'pre-written' code allowing you to move through your development in half the time.

I may also add that although the price tag is hefty, the program is more than worth it. The future of the web is in my opinion focused in and around flash. Macromedia just purchased Jrun (some months ago) and that alone shows that they're serious about creating and making real world applications.
Support for the product is great too. Lots of forums for help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Important: you can buy it for 100$ acad version
I agree, the price tag is a little big if you are not an expert commercial buisness animator person, but it is a great product. It is not as hard to learn as everybody says, the interface is great. IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE ANY STUDENT/TEACHER/MEMBER OF A ELM., MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL, OR COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY, YOU CAN BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR ONLY 100$. This is a lot less, 300$. Good Luck.

3-0 out of 5 stars MX ROCKS!!!
Flash MX is one of the most powerful development programs for web appliactions, web sites, web games, web cartoons, etc. The XML intergration (esp. XMLSocket) can be used to do everything from multiplayer games (like Jungle War.com and the ones on ElectroTank.com) to shopping carts to 3D model data. I am a Flash guru, game developer, and Mac user.

3-0 out of 5 stars Swish is better
Flash MX is a very good, detailed Flash making software. But it is also very advanced. For those of you with less than perfect flash making abilities, i recommend a program called "Swish". It's cheaper, and much much easier to use. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for Non-Designer Needing Web Graphics
I bought this after having struggled through trying to figure out how to use Photoshop Elements. I'm not a graphic designer. I'm a small business owner building my first Web site and I needed buttons (e.g., close window, next) and headings/banners (e.g., What's New, Take the Tour, Sign Up Now).

This program has been a god send relative to trying to figure out something like Photoshop Elements, which clearly is intended for people who are or have had training to be a designer. This program has many wizards to walk you through the common tasks (e.g., create a button, create a banner) or you can create your own (which I've found to be better for my needs). You can create some very slick, professional looking stuff (with shadows, embossed look, gradient images) with the same click-and-point ease of creating a PowerPoint presentation or the like, and the output is automatically optimized for the Web.

So why did I rate it a 4? A few annoyances...you can't group objects so if you decide you need to move a graphic box with several lines of text over a few inches, you have to move each object individually. And it doesn't have the very common aligning features (where you click several objects and click an option to automatically aline their edges or center). So everything must be done by eye on screen, and each object one at a time. And if you create one object/series of objects, save it and then want to add it to another item (like a menu bar), it doesn't treat them like a single graphic but imports them in as individual objects, creating even more challenges in trying to move them into position, etc.

Overall, though, it's an easy program that enables you to create basic, professional-looking graphics for the Web, ideal for the novice/professional without a design background. I use it frequently, in spite of its annoyances. ... Read more

Adobe enters the arena of Web animation tools with LiveMotion 1.0, atool that's used to create vector-based animation for Web delivery. Many of theanimation-specific features are based on Adobe's After Effects, long a dominantplayer in the field of motion graphics and animation. If you've used AfterEffects, you'll feel comfortable immediately with LiveMotion.

In many ways, LiveMotion is a better tool for creating vector-based animation thanMacromedia's Flash, its very popular competitor. Using a timeline/keyframemetaphor, LiveMotion makes it easy to animate the properties of an object overtime. Position, scale, opacity, and rotation all can be controlled with relativeease. It's also painless to create HTML elements, such as animated rollovers formenus and graphics.

However, if you come from a Flash background, you might be a bit disappointedwith LiveMotion. For starters, there are no scripting features. Also,LiveMotion's compression isn't quite as good as Flash's. In a test in which thesame animation was exported from both Flash and LiveMotion, the .swf file thatwas created by LiveMotion was about 15% larger. Because file size and downloadrates are so critical to Web-based graphic design, it's important to be aware ofthis type of issue.

Despite these shortcomings, we found it easier to draw and animate by usingLiveMotion. Superior (in both form and function) bezier drawing tools make it asnap to set up ready-to-animate graphics. Again, Adobe has kept LiveMotion's"feel" in the family by ensuring that the drawing functions are very similar tothose of Illustrator.

If you're looking to create high-quality, interactive Web content, Flash mightbe the way to go, especially if you're more familiar with Macromedia's look andfeel. However, if animation--and not interactivity--is the goal, and you haveexperience with Adobe's other products, LiveMotion should be a good fit. All inall, this is a very good first release. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Go Live for Macintosh
I purchased this with Photoshop 6.0 as a promotion and it is great for designing web graphics like buttons and adding shadows to your graphics, etc. The animations seem tricky, and it does not interface well with Dreamweaver like I hoped it would. It does not seem to be as easy to use as Flash or the other Macromedia products, but I heard that it is similar to After-Effects with the timeline feature and since I have that program too and want to learn how to use it, I felt that it would be better to stick to Adobe products for now. The interface with Photoshop and Illustrator is amazing. I am debating between using dreamweaver or GoLive as my Web Editor, and because of the Adobe interface I may stick to Go Live as well. My advice is is you have the Adobe products already try this out, but if you have Dreamweaver/Fireworks it may be better to get the Macromedia Flash product - it is the industry standard. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of resources
I purchased this product when it was released in '98 and found it to be an enormous waste of resources for the money. I returned the product immediately because the tools and utilities on this disk ran very poorly (slow to boot) or with system crashes at every launch. Moreover, similar and better designed "gizmos" included in this suite are all available online for free download. However, at the current price, this may be someting "buy and try" to debug. If you need worthless utilities, this is the disk to purchase. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars If I could give 0 stars I would
Anyone running Mac OSX should not buy Fireworks MX. I've been using this product grudgingly for months and the amount of bugs and errors in this program are amazing. It's actually a joke around the office that I get angry at least once a day at Macromedia.

You'll read a lot of reviews around with "Macromedia Evangelists" who will give a glaring review of all things Macromedia without actually using the products on a day-to-day basis, or they'll accept the bugs because they love Macromedia so much.

I admit, I'm still a Fireworks lover, and I'd never switch to Imageready or anything else for that matter, to do my web design. But, as of today, I'm moving back to Fireworks 4 and running inside of Classic. You may be wondering, what could cause someone who's been Classic-free for months to go back. Let me give you a small sampling of some of the bugs in this version of Fireworks inside of OSX:

Eyedropper tool selects the inverse of the color you're selecting, so you have to select that color twice.

Crop tool doesn't crop document elements of documents with multiple frames and multiple layers (I just found this bug today and haven't done complete testing to find when it does and doesn't happen)

You cannot copy or paste text into or out of the program

Those are just a few of the bugs I've found with this program. So, my advice to you... DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM IF YOU ARE RUNNING MAC OS X. Wait until they release a bug fix, which hopefully they'll do soon. But as of today, Feb. 25th 2003, there has been no word or even rumor of a patch.

I hate to be a slammer of a Macromedia product but this one deserves it. Hopefully they'll fix it soon. ... Read more
