Don't feel you're quite up to programming in C or C++ or Objective-C? Still want to create a QuickTime-savvy application? Then come check out the Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools that run under Mac OS X and that allow you to create full-featured QuickTime applications. In this presentation, you'll see how to create QuickTime applications using REALbasic, Runtime Revolution, and AppleScript Studio. Learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each of these development environments.
What is Rapid Application Development (RAD)? Why RAD? Why RAD and QuickTime?
We’ll cover step-by-step walkthroughs of building a QuickTime application using REALbasic, Runtime Revolution, and AppleScript Studio. Also we’ll have some preliminary discussion of the limitations of these tools.
Extending the RAD Tools
We’ll discuss how to move beyond the basic built-in capabilities of these tools, by writing plug-ins and calling external methods.
Limitations of the RAD Tools
We’ll address the limitations of these tools. Examples of QuickTime functionality that is not accessible using these tools, even using the plug-ins and external method calls discussed above, will be covered.
General wrap-up and reflection. Q&A
