We have been working for the last year w/ Director and have had lots of
frustration. In my opinion and experience, the documentation is horrid and
tech support is a joke. However, Director can be very powerful if you have
the time to overcome those difficulties. We aren't familiar with Demo It,
so we can't make a comparison.
