I want to see how I can update my MX2004 files to 11.5 but am having some problems creating an 11.5 projector.
As a test procedure I have taken an MX 2004 Director file and opened it in MX 11.5 and then saved it as an MX 11.5 file. Then I opened the 11.5 file in MX 11.5 to see if I could make a projector of the file that would function on current operating systems. On age 458 of director_11.5_help.pdf it describes how to do that.
So in the Publish Settings window I clicked on Formats with Publish options for both Windows(with an exe extension) and Macintosh(with an app extension) BUT NEITHER WAS CLICKABLE. I could click on Shockwave, HTML and Image file but not the ones I wanted.
So what do I need to do to create crsoo platform projectors of my MX files?
By the way I was able to solve my earlier QuickTime movie problem which makes movies cross platform with a control bar at the bottom of the video.
1. double click on the movie needing conversion
2. Go to FILE/EXPORT and click OPTIONS.
3. Choose H.264 compression type and sliders/options-BEST
4. Encoding mode:multi pass
5. To include a control bar
a. choose Window/Show Movie properties
b. select movie and click Presentation
c. Choose Movie Controller from Movie Controller Type pop up menu
d. Save movie
Are you using the trial version of 11.5? Have you used the Help menu to check for (and install) updates? When you type
put _system.environmentProplist -- [#shockMachine: 0, #shockMachineVersion: "", #platform: "Windows,32", #runMode: "Author", #colorDepth: 32, #internetConnected: #online, #uiLanguage: "English", #osLanguage: "English", #productBuildVersion: "629", #productVersion: "11.5.9", #osVersion: "Windows Vista,6,1,148,2,Service Pack 1", #directXVersion: "9.0", #licenseType: "Full", #trialTime: 0]
into your message window, what do you see returned for #productVersion and #productBuildVersion?
