Director 11.5!

Once again, those that thought that Director was dead get proven wrong. Adobe just announced version 11.5 of the software, which seems to be a pretty major update. You can check out the official press release.
Highlights seem to be:

  • A new audio engine that allows developers to deliver 5.1 channel surround sound and create audio effects using real-time mixing capabilities.
  • support for the H.264 format and RTMP-based streaming.
  • Create and import 3-D assets through Google SketchUp and SketchUp 3-D Importer.
  • The price is $999 new, $299 for an upgrade. Due out at the end of March.

      hi!
      congratulations for all the work you have done in promoting multimedia programming. excellent work!
      anyways, i am committed to learning and studying a multimedia programming language with 3d capabilities, in order to make games and educational products. i am currently studying director, and i have already made something like a “space invaders” type game just for practice.
      i am having second thoughts pursuing adobe director, however, since i am not sure if it will still be around in the future. since it’s really challenging to learn and master a computer language, i want to learn a multimedia programming language that will be there in the long run. now, i am deciding whether to switch to flash, unity, or something else.
      may i know if you have any idea about the future plans of adobe with regards to director? i’m sure a lot of people have this question in mind. i think if the adobe director group will only announce their future plans, then more people might switch to director. i think they made an announcement that they want director to be the market leader with regards to multimedia and 3d (i think), but that press release was made a long time ago. are they still headed in the same direction? i hope director won’t fold.
      thank you so much for your time.
      sincerely,
      efren
