This is a tutorial about the use of Director and 3ds max
to create 1st person 3D worlds.
It's not a tutorial for beginners. You need to know the basics of Director, 3ds
and programming with Lingo.
3D web design is a new-old world. Or: a "rediscovered" world.
In the beginings of the Web (1995), Mark Pesce did some experiments, trying to
create VRML. But (better not to talk about the reasons) he was not successful.
Now, the big players of the SW market (ADOBE, Macromedia, Microsoft etc.) are
begining the 2d round. Who knows the future... We like digital 3D and we hope
3D web will have its chance.

THE 3dD WORLD SITE STYLE
I'm not an english speaker/writer. I'm not a designer. I am only a programmer
trying to have fun with 3D web. So: our site has a style: bad english and ugly
design. But I hope you will have fun too. Thanks and stay with us.
Many lines of code presented here in this tutorial were not created by me. They
were colected in many books, sites, magazines etc. When I remember the source,
it is mentioned. If your name was not mentioned an you have some code published
here, sorry. This is a free tutorial only trying to help people to learn
3D using Director/3ds max. Thank you.
