choosing the right tools is often important for any particular job.

yeah, director's proprietary so it's not as cool as open source tools like frogo. i like the
concept of open source tools. but director has been around since 87 and it's always been for
artists; i see long term committment there to making an excellent tool for artists. it could
certainly use an OOP overhaul, but that won't happen. it would break too many things. so it has
a lifetime. not sure how long. but all these tools have a lifetime.

this way they're less like a 'tool' and more like a hedgehog.

1999 for the first one; the last one (so far), "Blue Hyacinth", was a collab with Pauline
Masurel in 2003.
