MacroMind Director 2.0 box.png

MacroMind Director 2.0 is the second major version of the Director multimedia authoring environment, which was released in April 1990 by MacroMind,[1] predecessor of Macromedia.[2]

Features[]

Director 2.0 was released solely for Macintosh, adding support for 24-bit color and the new Lingo scripting language.[1] It evolved from MacroMind VideoWorks Interactive Pro, which replaced the previous Tiny BASIC scripting language with Lingo.[3]

The authoring application was priced at US$695, or $100 for owners of previous versions. A run-time player was included for free, but commercial distribution required an additional $250 license fee. MacroMind Accelerator was a separate utility that could speed up playback for an additional $195.[4] The packaging was designed by Clement Mok.[5]
