Adobe Director 11.5 review

Digital Arts
28 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Director, Adobe’s tool for creating interactive content, for both online and standalone applications, gains several key features with version 11.5. High-def has arrived for Director and the Shockwave player, in the form of support for H.264 video.
  • Pros: H.264 video; 5.1 channel surround sound; real-time audio mixing and effects; RTMP-based streaming; Sketchup 3D content; ByteArray data type; productivity enhancements.
  • Cons: Movies scripted with AS3 or Flex components not supported; knowledge of Lingo/JavaScript development environment required for some features; relatively expensive.

It's back

  • Summary: It's tempting to see Director's resurrection as a timely response to the focus on rich-media online and offline applications, which has been sparked by Adobe AIR and Microsoft Silverlight. However, aside from workflow enhancements and some changes to scripting and physics, there's nothing groundbreaking in this release. The logical next move would be to beef up the feature set with something really novel.
  • Pros: Vista and Leopard support, support for Flash 9, PhysX engine and DirectX9, new bitmap filters, Unicode and text engine enhancements; script browser, code snippets
  • Cons: No PPC support for Mac users, workflow and installation gripes on Windows Vista, no GPU enhancements for Mac users, relatively expensive

  • Excerpt: Director has been notable by its absence in the successive Master Collections, so it’s refreshing to see this old stalwart of the multimedia-authoring brigade decked out in Adobe’s new livery.
  • Pros: Vista and Leopard support; support for Flash 9; PhysX engine and DirectX9; new bitmap filters; Unicode and text engine enhancements; script browser; code snippets.
  • Cons: No PPC support for Mac users; workflow and installation gripes on Windows Vista; no GPU enhancements for Mac users; relatively expensive.
