"Matthew Peterson, one of the world's most innovative minds, infuses Interactive QuickTime with applicable insight and helpful humor. This book goes well beyond the basics, far into the best practices, with plenty of supporting scripts and sample projects. Covering a wide spectrum of topics, Interactive QuickTime: Authoring Wired Media addresses the building of UIs, repurposing already existing media, using physics for richer motion, and that's just getting started. The appendices along with the exploration of XML in QuickTime are indispensable resources for the active producer of QuickTime media. I am excited to have this resource available for QuickTime authors!" âMichael Shaff, founder of Small Hands "This book belongs on the shelf of anyone who takes multimedia development seriously. For the aspiring QuickTime media developer, it addresses the most critical authoring issuesâand the techniques described are clever and applicable to multimedia development of any ilk." âKen Loge, Oregon Research Institute "You are holding a book written by one the smartest people I have ever metâand it has been my pleasure to know some VERY smart peopleâa book about one of the most exciting technologies on the planet. The writing is clear and enjoyable. It starts with material suitable for beginners and proceeds steadily through intermediate, advanced, and into previously uncharted territory . . . . It's a trip, my friend. And one worth taking . . . Be warned: this is not an ordinary book. It can literally change your life." âfrom the foreword by Steven Gulie, author of QuickTime for the Web "This book is chock-full of useful algorithms and interesting approaches to programming interactive behaviors in QuickTime movies." - MacTech
