Multimedia Builder is a powerhouse multimedia authoring
tool that involves no scripting or programming. Its completely visual
development environment makes it easy to create professional multimedia
projects in a minimal amount of time -- and at low cost. Projects can
integrate text, graphics, sound and video objects. You can add objects
that play sounds, display video, open a link in a Web browser, browse
a CD-ROM, display a document or help file, send an email, and much more.
Most interestingly, Multimedia Builder lets you define windows with custom
shapes; you don't have to fit your ideas inside a plain old rectangle.
Although the Multimedia Designer program requires DirectX, the Player
works with or without it, increasing the portability of Multimedia Builder
