Exporting Director Casts

Jan 5, 2012 3:02 PM

I have several programs that I need to convert to flash. I have access to the Director source code, but not to the original assets outside of the program. So I need to pull them out. I can do it one at a time, copying and pasting, but it's not very efficient. As far as I can tell most of the Xtras for this purpose are not compatible with files from later versions of Director. Is there any option other than the manual copy paste route?

    Can you explain what you mean by

    ...the original assets outside of the program.

    perhaps by providing an example?

    Did you look at the sharpexport?

    I read about this some time ago when I was seeking a way to export W3D files from director and edit them.

    I hope Adobe address this issue of editing cast members after being embedded, if you don’t have the original files it’s a pain.

     

    Best

    Graphics can be exported using Valentin Schmidt's ImgXtra, Audio files using the AudioXtra, video files must already be external (the castMember is just a link to the file).
