The CD-ROM Guide to Multimedia Authoring takes you off the page and onto the screen in a fully interactive handbook that goes beyond the simple "how to" by answering the more important question, "what for?" This guide is based on an understanding of human perception and how we respond to multimedia. It covers design, planning, storyboarding, navigation, and the skills you need to design a successful product.Also included is a breakthrough multimedia navigational tool, IntellAssist, which combines the best parts of hypertext and a multilevel subject index with the various features of multimedia. IntellAssist is a search tool that guides you to all locations of a topic, whether it be within the text, graphics, or digital video examples.The CD-ROM demonstrates and teaches the entire design process for all platforms; how to develop video to run across platforms; how to track, connect, and display hyperlinks to topics in text, graphics, and video; how to chart your multimedia title's interactivity with simple, inexpensive tools; and it includes exercises to test your creativity and help you understand the macro and micro level issues involved in multimedia development.
