Overview

Multimedia Flying Solo is designed to be an easy-to-follow tutorial for both HyperCard 2.2, 2.3 and the fascinating world of multimedia. This new version of HyperCard is the one you've been waiting for! Color graphics, dazzling images from a CD-ROM, and movie clips in full color add sparkle and substance to your information. This book is a gentle introduction to using the power of multimedia in your personal presentations, even if you are new to the Macintosh. A new feature of HyperCard, called Button Tasks, makes it easy to add movies and sound to your HyperCard buttons. One of the new Tasks, for example, allows the computer to read to you in a variety of nifty voices. The projects in this book are intended to be useful at home, school or work. Completing these projects will convince your friends that you are a secret computer science expert. The step-by-step nature of the instructions make this book easy to follow. Design ten projects that include sound, color graphics and video clips while you learn how to use the Macintosh. Move with ease through the step-by-step directions for each project. You can read the explanations or "fly" through the work by following the pictures. The pictures highlight the steps that get the work done. Hints and tips from the pros take much of the repetition out of the work. The book includes warning signs when things could get tricky. Everything you learn about HyperCard develops your computer muscles. The basic skills of HyperCard transfer to other Macintosh software.
