Xtras are plug-in applications (generally referred to as "plug-ins") that allow users to add specialized capabilities and extended functionality to products. Xtravaganza is the complete resource of all the Xtras that are currently available for Macromedia products, including Authorware, Director, FreeHand, SoundEdit 16, Extreme 3D, xRes, Fontographer, and Backstage. Xtravaganza is also the authoritative resource, with the backing and support of the Macromedia Press imprint.Chapters of the book are organized by the Xtra function (such as Transition, Graphic Effects, Video and Sound, etc.). Each chapter begins with its own quick-reference table of contents that graphically shows the Xtras covered in the chapter, the Macromedia products to which they apply, the type of Xtra, and the platforms supported. Each chapter continues with an explanation of the nature and essential vocabulary for the data types and functions covered in the chapter, and then describes what Xtras are available, what they do, how to use them, and how to evaluate and buy them. It also offers in-depth case studies of Xtras in use.This is one resource multimedia developers and authors can't be without!
