I've never thought much of the AVI export or even QT for that matter. My suggestion
would be to export the frames as a BMP sequence then use a program like Premiere to
do your video editing. For a full screen video, why not go with DVD or do you need
very high resolution?

Actually, we just decided to go with DVD. I have been prodding my (small) company to get Premiere, so I don't have it yet.
However, we are eventually going to go back and use a higher res version (I think). We have a kiosk that will go through a loop/touch screen UI, but we're thinking about linking a 2nd monitor and looping this movie.
I am very new to video. I do graphic design, but for my small co. I'm the multimedia/anything creative guy. Any advice would help.
Oh yeah, by the way, there are MPG files called out throughout the movie which is causing some glitches in the exporting.
I'm surprised you got anything useful out of the AVI export at all. The problem we run into when trying to take Director to video via AVI export is that all of the lingo that influences stage content is ignored. Our solution has been to use screen recording software like Camtasia to record Director’s output … we can sustain a frame rate of about 25 fps when capturing “full screen”, which for DVD is only 740x480. We still use Premiere for final edits and Adobe Encore for building the DVD menu structure but at least Camtasia gives us raw footage we can work with.
PS: If the only thing you are using Director for is to string together separate videos, then yeah, as has been mentioned before, it would be much more streamlined to just do all of the work in Premiere or even straight to Encore if the videos are close to final form.
