    Anything major I need to know about

    jkgiven
      I haven't touched Dirctor since back in 2004, using version 8.5. I haven't followed its usage or demand. Looks like I'm going to have to pick Director back up for a project, essentially starting all over, as I don't remember hardly anything of what little I knew back then. Anyway, looks like I will be able to purchase the latest version. What I would like to know is if Dirctor MX 2004 is what I need to get or is a new version release coming soon? Anything else that I should really consider? What do you think the best way to go about learning this software is? I realize this is a very open ended question, I'll make more specific one later, I'm just trying to gather a little information before the software is purchased.

          there is a new version about to come out any month now.

          i would start with the 30 days trial if i were you.

          a good way to get learning director is the tutorials of Dean. (google it)

          good luck.

            LOL!
            Ever the optimist, right? ;-)

            I understand the "soon-to-come-for-a-while-now" new version does not
            have many new features, most changes are under the hood. Unicode
            support is one of them. Finally.

            I still use 8.5 ... it does what I need, except for some Vista
            "features", and I am not sure if I will buy the newest version just
            for that.

            Newer versions have javascript syntax support, that might or might not
            be what you like.


            Richard.

                You mean if you can upgrade from 8.5 to 2008 with a 50% discount?
                I guess not. Should be on the Macrom.. eh... Adobe website ;)
