Hello, im quite new to Director, well I havent used it since
I was studing about 5 years ago!!!
Ive got 2 problems that I need help with,
so here it goes
Im having a problem importing SWFs into Director 2004
I dont know how to remove the SWFs background colour, so its
transparent, so only whats in the flash movie is visable
so for example if you had a large image in the background in
Director and you wanted the flash to act as a menu (over the image)
so I dont want a white box surrounding the button in flash.
so how do you import an swf with a transparent background

for example (what im trying to do is)
people will browse through a gallery of image using a next
and previous button (images are full screen)
lets say 9 images in total.
but at anytime I want the user to select an image from
thumbnails,so the user will click for thumbnails (so they will
apear) I want a movie clip of some kind, so it doesnt effect the
position of the playhead to appear, so you can select an image,
then the thumbnail menu will disapear again
(hope I explained that right???)
im having real trouble doing this, so if anyone can please
help that would be cool before I give up and do the whole CDROM in
