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 max 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.


This tutorial is not only to be readed. You need, at each lesson, to make the exercice/demo. This is the right way to really learn.


We know that it's not the ideal tutorial for your level. This ideal tutorial doesn't exist.

If you have some doubt, try the User to Users Forums from Macromedia . There are many qualified people that can help you. We also read the Forums and can help sometimes.


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.

Adobe Director (formerly Macromedia Director) is a multimedia application authoring platform created by Macromedia—now part of Adobe Systems. It allows users to build applications built on a movie metaphor, with the user as the "director" of the movie. Originally designed for creating animation sequences, the addition of a powerful scripting language called Lingo made it a popular choice for creating CD-ROMs and standalone kiosks and web content using Adobe Shockwave. Adobe Director supports both 2D and 3D multimedia projects.
