With Director 11 or a combination of Director 11 and the Adobe Shockwave Player, users can author once and publish content for the Web, CDs/DVDs and the desktop simultaneously. This robust environment complements Adobe's ecosystem of creative products, enabling users to add Adobe Flash SWF files to Director projects, play them in Director and Shockwave, and easily edit them with Adobe Flash CS3 Professional. In addition, Director 11 supports a wide variety of third-party add-ons creating the most extensible authoring environment possible. Director 11 also enables content creators to localize applications through Unicode, create new levels of lifelike motion in games and simulations with the Ageia 'PhysX' physics engine, and deliver more engaging experiences with enhanced text and native 3D rendering.
"With the new Director 11, users can unleash their creative capabilities and broaden their market reach with less effort, producing more engaging multimedia applications in less time," said Naresh Gupta, senior vice president, Print and Publishing at Adobe. "This milestone release provides a strong and flexible authoring environment that perfectly complements Adobes broad suite of authoring products, extending our customers' creative reach to interactive 3D animations and games."
