Software

Could someone suggest the best software package to use for NON-web based multimedia. I know Flash is the choice for anything web but what would you use to create interactive instructional material that will be burned to DVD?

Too vague.

You need a bigger specification. Be sure to include that it must run on BluRay players or such as you see fit. What you are asking for is much too broad a spec. Try again.

Actually, I have taught Director for years and I'm just trying to decide whether to change our curriculum to Flash because I'm concerned the industry is no longer using Director. I was sending out an inquiry to see if there was still a need for students trained in Director.

Still pretty vague but what about?

Today there is a small shift towards HTML5 as a basis for such interactive content. Armed with HTML5, Javascript and not much else we can get interactive or tutorials up in no time without much effort.

The only trouble I ran into was the 'old guard' that had invested themselves into Flash and older technologies.
