    .dir movies to iPad apps

    MECS Level 1

      Has anyone "converted" their .dir movies to iPad apps?  How did you do it?  What software did you use?

       

      Thanks.

          This will be able to be done with Director shortly, but you'll have to wait for the next release (and the inevitable slew of patches)

              Posted this in another forum but worth cross-posting. For those that haven't seen it, here's a video of a Director made game exported to iOS, running on an iPad:

              Release dates are generally not discussed, well not until we're close to that point (within a month). Unfortunately, Director hasn't followed a standard development cycle like other products which would allow people to roughly guess when the date may be.

               

               

              Here are some clues that may give you some ideas.

              - There were some updates to Director (free point updates) released last year.

              - This year, there have already been 2 conference demos of Director and iOS and other things - GDC and Casual Connect.

                I have been runnig development product on iPhone and Android in Director on the Mac via Air Display and iDisplay.

                 

                I've looked at Hype and built small development product in that, but is not yet as flexable as Director. I saw the youTube Director demo on the iPad a little while ago (thanks Dean) but will these compile to  Android do you know?

                 

                Thanks for your hard work, Ron

                  The demos Adobe have shown so far have been for iOS only, not Android. While Adobe have been talking about intentions to support the broader mobile space, there have been no definite annoucements or sneak peaks.
