I have a project that I did in Macromedia Diretor in 1995.  I understand that Adobe bought this product.  If there a free program that I can use to convert these files enabling me to read them?

 

Thanks for your help.

I wouldn't have thought so – very old software; good in its day, but even its successor, Flash, is now obsolete.

Thanks Derek.  I guess there is nothing I can do to retrieve the data.  It was a project that I created for a multimedia class that I took.  I actually didn't do the coding aspect.  My ex-partner did.

I've moved this from the poorly named Community Help forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Get Started forum.

Unfortunately, .dir is an obsolete project file that only works with Director.  It's not even a video file so there is no way to convert it.  By any chance did you export your Director projects to video?

Hello Nancy,

 

This was part of a project that I did for a multimedia class.  My ex-partner took my ideas and was the one who used Director. When we split, he took the finished product with him.  I have the pieces.  I guess the information is lost.    Thanks for your help all the same.

Get the emulator macintosh.js , find a copy of Macromedia Director 5, digitize it, install it in the emulator, then put your project in there and have a look at it in action.
