Adobe Director continues a tradition of nearly twenty years of excellence in multimedia authoring. Shockwave isn’t just any web plugin, it’s the plugin that revolutionized the Internet more than a decade ago providing Rich Internet Applications, games, presentations, animations when web pages were otherwise slow and static.

Today there is no better way to publish robust cross-platform real-time 3D applications on the Internet than via Adobe Shockwave. It is the most powerful online plugin in its class and remains an industry leader. With over 60% ubiquity it by far the most far reaching Internet plugin for providing 3D visualization, interaction and animation. I look forward to hearing from members of the community of Director Authors and developers. Look to this space for regular updates about Director and Shockwave.
