I am a new user of director 11. I never had an experience in
any multimedia tools. My company requires me to use director
instead of flash - actionscript. Now, I am not certain about using
director cause I really dont know the UPs and DOWN of it. I want to
ask some advice about security issues. In flash, .SWF can be
decoded. And that's what we are trying to avoid. Is director safe
from this issue? Please give me some advices on this.
Another thing is, what will be the best site I can go that is
best suited for beginners like to learn...
Director source DIRs files can be made into DXR or DCRs. DXRs
are used for offline
applications. DCRs are Shockwave files for the web (although
can be used offline
too). DXRs and DCRs are protected files. It is possible to
extract media content
from the files but it is impossible to extract any code
inside the file. So,
Director is safer than Flash on this front.
Next, where to learn Director. Well, I have tutorials at:
http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/ and they are designed for beginners. I also have a resouces
page with links to all
the best Director help and resources sites on the web.
