I am recieving a particularly nasty error message. What will happen is,
right in the middle of working on a project, the program will lock up and freeze, I close it, but when I open it again it says :
Director player error

We'd love to help you out. Couple of questions:

Has this happened repeatedly?

What exactly were you doing when it occurred? Adding a new effect? Editing an effect? Something else?

Have you added or removed any plug-ins from the plug-in directory?

When you open it again, are you just launching the program, or are you re-opening the project?

What system are you on?

It *appears* knock on wood, that the problem has corrected itself. Knock on wood. The problem would occur right in the midst of adding effects. It occured repeatedly, as I added an effect, then went to the next frame, everything would lock up, no functionality. I would close the program, try to re-open it, and I would recieve the error message. I would restart my computer, the program would open, then again right in the midst of adding effects then moving onto the next frame, or back to a previous one, everything would freeze. I reinstalled the program on my system and it APPEARS ahem, to have corrected the problem. I am running Windows XP, have 512 MB memory, G force2 video card. Running in 32 color mode. And my processor is almost 2 gig. The techniques of film making are very new to me, just messing with these various programs has jumped my computer knowledge significantly, now, my problem seems to be once I have completed my film, adding sound back to it. Exporting and rendering and codecs are all brand new concepts to me. Whew.

Well, I'm glad to hear it sorted itself out (hopefully permanently). The process of re-connecting your audio and video should be relatively simple, although it varies a bit depending on which app you are using to edit your movie. Basically all you have to do is import the new footage from AlamDV into your editing app, where your original footage is still in place. Now drop the new footage directly over the old, leaving the sound where it was to begin with. Done.
