Home News & InsightDirector 11 Announced!
February 19th, 2008
Finally! Director 11 has been announed by Adobe. For those who are unaware, Director is the industry leading tool when it comes to CD-ROM and distributed content. It is simply unmatched for power and reliability!
Throughout my career, I've developed a ton of large CD-ROM distributed projects and have had well into the millions is circulation. Director is my tool of choice.
Some of the new features in Director 11
- Support for more than 40 video, audio, and image file formats
- Native 3D rendering with DirectX 9 support
- Advanced physics with the included AGEIA™ PhysX™ engine
- Support for Adobe Flash CS3 Professional software and video created with Flash
- Unicode support, including multimode publishing
- Enhanced text rendering engine
- Enhanced user interface
- Bitmap filters
- Xtra plug-ins
Unfortunately, with these exciting new features, nowhere is it mentioned to incorporate native PDF support or enhanced (reliable) DVD playback.
Hopefully these are two items I'm simply overlooking? Nonetheless, it's a great day! HD-DVD falls and Director 11 is released! Perhaps I'll win the lottery next?
