-- I'm still looking for the friendliest programming or non-programming environment for
multimedia development. There does not exist a non-programmer's solution, so here I am.
Recent exploration has revealed that Director no longer is pursuing a verbose programming
written by aliens, but how did they get so much universal power?
So, as far as a verbose, English-like solution, there isn't anything else other than Revolution
that I would even consider trying to tackle.
But my application goals are entirely in the realm of multimedia production. I don't see many
multimedia or game oriented programs being written in Transcript, but that could just be
due to lack of interest among the Revolution community. I've casually investigated Malte's
arcade engine, but that is not exactly everything I would need to emulate some of Director's
"built-in" functionality. I know that Revolution doesn't supply these kinds of templates, but,
as regards overall functionality and prowess in multimedia, can someone with experience of
both environments comment on similarities, differences and strengths of both development
platforms? Also, Director supports, probably the largest set of graphic and video formats;
how does Revolution compare in this area?
