Multimedia phase

  2. 2. PHASE 2• PHASE 2 – CREATING – Step 1 : Developing the content – Step 2 : Authoring the title 2
  3. 3. STEP 7 : Developing The Content• “Creating the pieces”• The specifications, including any scripts, indicate the content to be incorporated into the multimedia title.• There are numerous content issues that need to be addressed : – What is the level of quality for the content (photorealistic graphics, stereo sound)? – How will the content be generated (repurposed existing content, hire content experts to write text, employ graphic artist and other professionals)? – Who will be responsible for acquiring copyrights and licensing agreements? – How will the content be archived and documented? 3
  4. 4. STEP 8 : Authoring The Title• “Bringing it all together”• In determining which authoring system to use, a developer would consider the following points: – The playback system (Macintosh and/or Windows based computers) – some authoring programs work with only one platform. – The emphasis placed on animation – certain programs have fairly sophisticated 2D animation tools. – The expertise of the programmer – programs differ greatly in the approach they use (metaphor) and their scripting language. 4
  5. 5. INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA DEVELOPMENT• PHASE 3 – TESTING – Step 9 : Testing the title 5
  6. 6. STEP 9 : Testing The Title• “Does it work the way it was planned?”• Although it is listed as the final step in the development process, testing should be ongoing.• Testing can start at the very beginning during the concept stage.• Throughout the creation phase of the title, it is important to test the design and the function. 6
  7. 7. STEP 9 : Testing The Title• Testing the design involves how the user interacts with the title and asks questions such as: – Does the user understand the navigation scheme, terminology, icons and metaphors? – Does he or she get stuck, confused, or lose interest?• Usability testing – a formal process in which potential users are videotaped as they interact with a title and asked to verbalize what they are thinking. 7
  8. 8. STEP 9 : Testing The Title• There are two formal processes : alpha testing and beta testing. – Alpha testing – usually conducted in-house and is not restricted to the development team. • the idea is to try to make it crash, and every conceivable action (point and click) and navigation path should be explored. 8
  9. 9. STEP 9 : Testing The Title– Beta testing – the final functional test before release. • It involves selected potential users that could number in the thousands. • Because the users are outside the company, they are often required to sign nondisclosure agreements to prevent them from revealing information about the title before it is released. • A goal of beta testing is to get feedback from as wide a variety of potential users as possible. • Another goal is to have the test done on as many different computer configurations as possible. 9
