> Aldo, what do you think about new Director?I think it has lost relevance. A long (long) time ago, Shockwave had the only hardware accelerated 3d browser-plugin with any market penetration. That made it interesting for panoramas.
> What is the potential of Director 12 for 360video?Very little, in my opinion. Shockwave as a plugin has far too many issues and not enough install-base to be interesting. Browser-plugins are a lost cause anyway, and there are better performing solutions on the way. WebGL being an overdue one.
I don't even think that there is a well-supported way to use video as a texture in this release.
>> It would be interesting to see what the iOS Shockwave3d support is.As far as I know, Shockwave3d is supported. You have to wonder though if the price of Director and the publishing royalties you may have to pay for your app in the app-store are worth the little time you save by not writing the application from scratch in xcode. Or you could simply use krpano in a phonegap/cordova container.
