I want to show individual short pieces of film that people
can scroll along and play by clicking each piece.
They can then drag their favourite pieces onto a time line
and play them as one piece of film.
The "how" is the same in all general cases: break it down
chunks and work on those until the big picture is complete.
If there are
smaller pieces that you don't know how to do, then by all
means ask for
help. The phrasing of your question is so broad as to suggest
someone here to build your application for you. While you
someone willing to do that, you won't learn much from the
Have you used Director before? Do you know how to layout cast
sprites in the score? When you say "film" do you mean
"video"? If so,
you can place video sprites on your stage and have the
playhead loop or
pause on top of these sprites. Then you could attach a
behavior to each
video sprite that makes it play when clicked. Do you want it
to play in
situ, or in a larger window? Break it down into manageable
tackle them one at a time.
