Sorry, I should have searched for the answer prior to posting the question. I see that Adobe isn't going to support AS3 in Director anytime soon.
Actually, Adobe has not made any statements about the state of AS3 and
Director apart from the fact that it is not usable in the current
version. They never said anything along the lines of "Adobe isn't going
to support AS3 any time soon". Of course, they never said they
wouldn't either. They have certainly not made any definitive statements
about what will or will not be included in the next version of Director.
Any guesses on your part (or mine) would be simply guesses that are not
based on any facts. My guess is that AS3 will be supported in the next
version of Director (at which point Flash will likely have brought out
AS4). But that is simply my guess.
Ok, now I'm confused. Check out the datasheet PDF on Adobe's site. It states:
Support for Flash 9 and video created with Flash:
Expand your creative options by seamlessly
importing content created with Flash 9,
including files using ActionScript 3.0."
Here is the link to the datasheet: www.adobe.com/products/director/pdfs/director11_datasheet.pdf.
That is true in a marketing sense... if there is AS3 in the swf, then it
might work. But, in the technological sense, it is not entirely true.
Director can not communicate with AS3... AS3 can not communicate with
Director. If the script is entirely self contained, then it should
work. AS3 components absolutely will not work. We can all hope that
this is addressed in a future release. But so far, Adobe has made no
mention of any such thing.
