[REBOL] Re: Flash tech? Was Re: Re: (No subject)Date: Tue, 20 Nov 2001 17:20:09

Hi Jason, Donald and all, I'm everyday working with Macromedia Director so I don't have so much experience with Flash directly but I think these two products are very similar in some aspects. From my POV Macromedia stuff and their philosophy is very poor against Rebol. Yes, Flash and Director has some more gfx features than /View but man, It is version 5(Flash) and 8.5(Director)!! I think Macromedia has just one big monopol in their "internet-multimedia" field/market because there is not almost any good alternative technology to compete with. If RT guys would work on /View multimedia stuff intesively for about one year they could have made /View as a big competitior against Flash(Director). Rebol/View, although it lacks (for now) things like vector gfx, font engine, rotation, alpha channels, free sound, streaming, multimedia format support, embedded plugin, it has lots of advatnages...very good core, the language itself, the communication stuff such as ports, protocols, and very good mutiplatfom standard quality, cheap prize. (I believe, most of you will agree that we couldnot compare Rebol against crappy ActionScript or even Lingo.) Anyway both technologies has own cool developers and software pieces( just have a look at: ) I don't want to make any flame wars against MM fans/haters. I just wanted to point out the possibilities for Rebol/View(Hey RT guys! What about eat few pieces from big Macromedias money-pie? ;-) ). I still believe RT could make from /View far more better multimedia engine than all MM products are... just my 2 cents ;) regards Cyphre ----- Original Message ----- From: "Donald Dalley" <[ddalley--idirect--com]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Wednesday, November 21, 2001 4:49 PM Subject: [REBOL] Flash tech?
