[lajoiet] "I'm struggling with weather or not to purhcase Director also, but I'm confused by your characterization. FLVs do not reqire a long timeline to play, as Lee's tutorials clearly show since they play the FLVs just fine and are only 1 frame in length.

I also don't understand how you can use SWFs in Director to replace what you had as FLVs in Flash????"


lajoiet,

it was my lack of understanding about flv files being able to play back in just one frame in flash. i'll have to look up that tutorial...
to give you a file size comparison, the flash projector was about 500MB and the director projector was only 66MB. and for whatever reason, in flash, only seven of thirteen scenes played back in the projector. time was scarce so i decided to redo it in director.

to answer your other question about swf's and flv's...
the media files originated in camtasia studio. when working in flash, to maximize playback compatibility, i decided to use flv files. i also tried using swf's in flash, but the program didn't like it very much. instead of one media file, it came in as a series of bitmaps, and i couldn't control its playback. so when i decided to use director instead, camtasia let me export swf files, which director handles well, and the file sizes were a little smaller.

also, as far as i know, the latest version of director (mx2004) does create cross-platform projectors. earlier versions do not. as far as new versions go, i have no idea. just keep checking macromedia's site.
