Hmmm … I seem to be able to convert the file to swa and the number of cue points and time marks are correct but the cue point names are gibberish … it’s like Director is reading binary cue point names as if they were plain text.
Fixed it, sort of… Apparently by default Sound Forge doesn’t name the cue points at all and Director doesn’t like this (at least up to MX04, don’t know about 11). To create wav files with metadata that Director will read:
In Sound Forge navigate to Options > Preferences > Labels.
Check the box “label markers”, I also used the prefix and leading zero options
Any new markers will now have labels
For my present project I already had 83 cue points accurately positioned that I didn’t want to remake. In this case I renamed each cue point by hand, one at a time. Insanely tedious but better than marking the file again.
I use to use SoundForge for audio and Cue Points. Then switched to Cool Edit Pro
and continuing to Adobe Audition. Audition works well. I haven't tried Soundbooth
