DirectImage Xtra is Shockwave safe, so it can also be used with
Shockwave 7 and above and when Director safety features are turned on.
When the Xtra is in safe mode it can import and export image files
through a built-in file selection dialog box from/to anywhere on the
local machine, or directly from/to the Shockwave support folder
(DswMedia folder) without displaying a dialog box.

An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of DirectImage Xtra is also
available. It is a compressed version of the Xtra that can be downloaded
automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever
needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web
with the advanced imaging capabilities that the Xtra provides.

The Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and
above, and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME,
NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8, 9 and X.
