This page introduces our xtra products, and the other xtras related to us.

Public Xtras

The following are public xtras in this website. You can jump to the each xtra page from the menus in left side.

WebViewer Xtra

The First Cross-Platform Web Browser Embed Xtra.

WebViewer Xtra embeds Web Browser functions in your Director movie, using Microsoft's Internet Explorer engine in the Windows platform, and Apple's Safari engine in the Macintosh platform. By cross-platform Lingo scripting, it realizes not only HTML rendering, but also full controlling of the web browser features such as re-direct hyper-link navigation, disable the context menu, and so on. It also provides you some additional functions like executing your JavaScript, capturing the rendered HTML image, etc.

 

External Control Interface Xtras

The following xtras build bridges between Director and external hardware devices. They provide a way for Director developers to control original input/output devices and robots. Director itself already has the most powerful authoring features to handle multi media resources. It also has its rich developer community. So these xtras open up new possibilities for them.

Notice: These are custom-made xtras, not for public release. Sorry.

AIBO Xtra

AIBO Xtra is a Lingo extension xtra to control Sony's dog-shape robot 'AIBO' by Director. Using this xtra you can control its motion, retrieve it sensor values, capture its view images, and mode. Director and this xtra make it possible to sync the virtual AIBO in Shockwave3D and the real AIBO, and co-dancing with other AIBOs over the internet via Multi User Server.

LEGO Xtra

LEGO Xtra is a Lingo extension xtra to control LEGO Mindstorm's core module 'RCX' by Director. Using this xtra you can control its motor and retrieve it sensor values. You can control your original LEGO robot remotely with your rich-media interface.

H8 Control Xtra

H8 Control Xtra is a Lingo extension xtra to control 'H8' general-purpose 7-bit micro computer by Director. You can make the hardware part of your system with the H8, and make the software part with Director and this xtra. What you can do with this xtra is just depends on your idea.

 

Scientific Visualization Xtra

The following xtras realizes the realtime 3D simulations which is impossible by Director alone. These xtras are specialized 3D rendering engines for Director/Shockwave to calculate the complex simulations and visualize them in realtime. They have own rich user interfaces designed by Director, they work on multi-platforms, and they have special features such as the stereo rendering. The integration of Director's authoring capability and these kind of original rendering engine is the most powerful solution.

Solar System Simulator Xtra

Solar System Simulator Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualize our solar system in realtime 3D space. It is highly intuitive and interactive simulation tool, so you can set any time you want, go to anywhere you like, to learn many kind of astronomical phenomena.

Galaxy Navigator Xtra

Galaxy Navigator Xtra is a sprite Xtra which visualize our Milky Way galaxy based on the Hipparcos star catalog. By flying freely in the galaxy space, you can understand the three-dimensional of the constellations. It can also visualizes various look of our galaxy observed by radio, infrared, optical, X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes.

Gas Simulator Xtra

Gas Simulator Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes behavior of gas particles in a closed piston cylinder. By observing these particles in the microscopic world, you can understand the behavior of gas in the usual world, such as its temperature, volume and pressure.

MD Simulation Xtra

MD Simulation Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes realtime molecular dynamics simulation in 3D space by calculating coulomb force between atoms. By observing the behavior of atoms in the microscopic world, you can understand the change of molecule structure and state as changing its temperature.

Ion Behavior Xtra

Ion Behavior Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes the behavior of ionic particles in realtime. By playing with this interactive small system, you can intuitively understand the coulomb force and the property of ionic bounding.

Molecule Viewer Xtra

Molecular View Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes 3D shape of the molecules described in the PDB format. It can change rendering style and coloring, and it can also play the sequential animation of the molecules.

Galaxy Collision Xtra

Galaxy Collision Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes the collision of the galaxies with simulating it in realtime. You can set up the parameters of the simulation such as the angle and speed of collision, the type of galaxy and more.

Galaxy Viewer Xtra

Galaxy Viewer Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes the galaxies and other particle systems. Because it is specialized for particle rendering, it can render the large particle systems as fast as possible.

Gravity Lens Xtra

Gravity Lens Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes the gravity lens illusion - an optical lens created using the light bending properties of gravity. You can interactively apply this illusion on any images and live streaming movies.

Aurora Simulation Xtra

Aurora Simulation Xtra is a sprite xtra which visualizes the behavior of the charged particle in the magnetic field around the earth. By shooting the charged particles interactively, you can see the most of particles are rejected by the magnetic field, but some particles around the pole of the earth can reach the earth surface in spiral trajectory.

Orihalcon Xtra

Orihalcon Xtra is a sprite xtra which realizes much more powerful 3D rendering than Shockwave3D and other realtime 3D rendering engines. In addition to realtime 3D animation rendering, it can handle post effect effects, GPU shadings, movie textures, Flash rendering in 3D, powerful scripting, multi-screen and distorted stereoscopic projection renderings, and more. It has full of realtime graphics features and great salability.
