So much so that we’ve decided to feature all that’s new, wonderful and different in MultiMedia development tools in this, our first special ‘unsealed’ section.
We review a number of new multimedia and hypermedia tools, take a look at how one or two MultiMedia developers feel about the choices available (and, no, they didn’t all choose VB!) and review a couple of the basic techniques for creating Multimedia-enabled applications.
For too long, VB developers especially have almost tacitly assumed that VB wasn’t a real MultiMedia tool, but even the most cursory glance at Encarta will show a heap of VBXes... if it’s good enough for Microsoft’s premier MultiMedia offering, it’s surely good enough for the rest of us.
And there’s an increasing realisation amongst Government and Business that
MultiMedia isn’t just some passing fad or a toy. As users’ PCs catch up
with the once-outrageous MultiMedia specifications, we’ll see even more
growth. Aussie Developers take note!
