Were you looking for someone to test other platforms such as Vista?... or are you looking for verification... or a solution?
I'm guessing a solution is not going to be available, but I would recommend constraining the video from going off the monitor if you haven't already added that 'feature' for win7 (you can test the OS easily enough using the platform property).
Anyways, if you can clarify what assistance you are looking for then that'd help.
I also found this problem occurs on Vista.
Other than reencoding the movies do you have a fix?
when movie is not DTS it works on my Win7/64bit.
Unfortunately direct to stage does not use the graphics card and then you lose performance.
I believe it is a memory issue with director and the new operating systems. I have had this escalated with adobe. I don't know if they will fix.
I hope so! The last time I heard from adobe about this was april.
There are other memory issues as well.
The problem is in the way Direcor 11 deals with H264. It thinks of them as MP4 files but if you import them as quick time they do not perform very well.
If you change the extension to .mp4 and reimport them as MP4 files they work great, of course all your codeing around them must be changed.
I've decided to just recompress the file with a different codec and relink the files to .mov
Your solution works great for smaller files, 320x240, but it does not work for 1024x768.
I use Adobe Media Encoder CS4, it won't let me make an mp4 format file with mp4 multiplexing at 1024x768 resolution.
So I make an h264 format with mp4 multiplexing, the extension is mp4. The 1024x768 file crashes if I move the quicktime movie off the screen. The 320x240 does not crash in either format.
I still believe this is a memory issue Adobe needs to address.
My solution works just fine if you use a compression application that make a QT move - Not in H264 codec -.
My 1920 X 1080 work just fine.
Oh and it's not a memory issue. It the fact the Director 11 does not work properly.
They (ADOBE) know it and we have to live with it.
Thanks this works
I used Adobe Media Encoder Quicktime format with MPEG-4 video Codec
I was able to leave it .mov and import as quicktime
I was able to move the movie off the screen
So now if I need to I can use Windows 7, although it is a hog
I hope we get some faster processors quick
I still think Adobe needs to fix this.
