I'm new to Director and am in the process of evaluating it. So far it looks like a promising product for what I'm looking to do except the following:
It also works to layer silverlight objects and flash objects.
I'm currently just using shockwave games to do the test. Is there some sort of authoring setting that might fix this problem?
Does the shockwave plugin not listen to z ordering commands? Ideally I'd like to also have shockwave render some transparency so I can see the flash object that is underneath it (or vice-versa).
thanks for any help.
Shockwave doesn't layer in the browser like Flash does, and AFAIK there's nothing you can do about it.
thanks for the info. It seems like Unity 3d and other 3d web plugins also suffer from this same issue. I would assume this would be easy for Adobe to fix. I posted a follow up question.

Your assumption might be right - I don't know enough to comment. However, persuading them to actually do it, easy or not, is an altogether different matter - and frankly they don't have a great track record with either Director or Shockwave.
IOW: don't hold your breath.
