Starting with VideoWorks 1.0 and paying each time to upgrade up to Director
5, I have finally begun learning in order to see if Director can provide
what I need for a project I have in mind.
Now that I've reached the time to test on the web, I find that my Shockwave
book (from 1996) has a version of Afterburner that is not compatible with
How can I find a copy of this free software in order to continue my
evaluation of Director 5 to see if it will suit my needs, before investing
the substantial amount needed to bring my version up to date?
Using a Mac, sys 8.6.
Thank you for any help.

If you do find what you are looking for, you might find that some of the
director 5 code doesn't work right with current version of end user
Later director versions have built in shockwave compression, no more
If you got at least version 8 you would be mostly up to speed, 8.5 if
you want real time 3d in your shockwave files.

JB is right, that is an exceedingly old version to test with. Also, if I
recall correctly, Afterburner does not create streaming Shockwave files. I
think it became a streaming format when Shockwave compression was
integrated into Director 6 or 6.5.
You might want to consider testing with the free evaluation copy of
Director MX instead.
