I totally feel ya (though I don't know the thread you are writing about)...
My only complaint is that there is little support for it, however it is obviously quite powerful and full of deesign steroids
In particular it works so well with illustrator, if only I could figure out import=>swf to work on the server
The program I always dreamed of… Well, Catalyst and Final Cut Pro. The
thread I originally gave Catalyst a somewhat bad review in was called
"How can I create a horizontal scrollbar with a centered thumb that
scrolls content from both sides?" It got 90 views and I am hoping that
the new thread gets as many. I feel guilty.
I don't think that Catalyst is the best tool for creating websites.Your site is nice, but it takes 30 seconds to load. It's just huge !!
Above all Catalyst allows the designer to create user interfaces for applications.
For websites, there is HTML, CSS, or Flash !
I know my site takes too long (30 sec.'s) to load. I optimized all the
raster images in Photoshop and am going to optimize the vector
graphics soon and republish. The entire site is under 5 Mb which I
thought was pretty good coming from the print world but I guess that
IS huge for the web.
