from the MacroMedia director FAQ.

<excerpt>* What functions does Director perform?

You use Director to import 2D and 3D graphics, text, animations,
sounds, and digital video (or create 2D graphics and text using
Director's built-in graphics and text editors). These media elements -
or objects - can then be integrated, synchronized, and animated over
time using Director's powerful animation and integration tools. You can
easily add interactivity using simple pull-down menus and options. The
completed production can be distributed to users via self-running
executables - called Projectors - or over the Web using Shockwave.

* Who uses Director?

Web developers, designers, creative directors, corporate presentation
specialists, students, educators, publishers - more than 350,000 people
worldwide - use Director to help them translate their vision into
stunning multimedia applications.


??? No MultiMedia authors? No CD-ROM creators?

yep, MM is dead and gone.
