    Director Next Survey - More Results

    Level 7
      Hi all,

      It's been three weeks since I closed the survey. And it's taken that
      amount of time to go through all the data and sort everything. The most
      time consuming part was examples/elaborations people gave on the
      features. Just as well not everyone filled those parts in. Anyway, all
      that information has been collated, nicely organised, and sent off to
      Adobe.

      I have not put this info on my site as I'm not sure if people would be
      interested in reading it all. If anyone is interested in this info, let
      me know. I could always email a specific feature document to you.

      I have added a new page to the survey section of my site. It is:
      http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/survey/DirectorRoadmap/comments.htm

      This covers the 300 odd comments I received on the survey. They range
      from positive things on Director, to rants, to thanks. All are sorted.

      Thanks again for all who contributed.

      regards

          Hi Dean,

          I would recommend giving Adobe one more clue:

          They should improve Director's sound engine so it would make it easier
          to sheamless loop SWA or MP3 COMPRESSED sounds of background music type.
          Specifically I mean sounds played from file or stream rather than memory.

          Currently it is damn hard to make it working in an elegant manner.
          Normally there is either some nasty pause or in the worst scenario -
          some loud audible tick while looping this sort of sounds. The moment of
          looping is normaly not sheamless with compressed files.

          On the other hand - looping background music theme (often of several
          minutes length) is frequently required feature of CD or web
          presentations. Customers got bored with simple looped phrases of just a
          few bars. Now they want something "less noticably looping".

          Rgs,
          Ziggi
