Director might be overkill for a simple portfolio. Flash could arguably do everything you require, without having to get knee-deep in ‘Lingo’.
I did my showreel in Flash, it autoruns from a CD very nicely, and includes full interactivity, audio, imbedded video and dynamic text.
Lewis [/quote:dc6d5a7b24] I’d agree with Lewis…. learning curve for Flash is significantly shorter than Director – plus the plug-in is more ubiquitous, not to mention the free add-ins and extensions available from the user community on the Macromedia Exchange site
