Director MX2004 won't work with a Flash CS3/AS3 .swf file. Using an external css file should be no problem. You will need to link the .swf and not directly import it into the Director movie.
Are you sure?
My Flash 9 swf doesn't seem to work even when linked in Director.
http://robotarcade.com/director/Program.swf - This is the swf the Director file is linking to
http://robotarcade.com/director/2.dcr - This is the DCR file Director published
http://robotarcade.com/director/2.dir - This is the .DIR Director source file
Do you have any suggestions?
i think flash 9 comes in Director 11. now is only up to flash 8.
correct me if im wrong
Director MX2004 can only play Flash .swf files saved for the Flash 8 player and using AS2. You can use external css files with linked Flash .swf files.
Rob, thank you for replying.
However, I am confused.
I understand the following:
- The current version of Director does not support the direct importing of (Flash CS3/Flash Player 9/AS3) .swf files.
You have said:
You can use external css files with linked Flash .swf files.
This is the part that confuses me.
In Director, I have found the option to externally "link" a .swf file. I attempted this with my (AS3/Flash Player 9) .swf file, with poor results, as seen in my previous post.
Your latest message states: "You can use external css files"
Do you mean that I can make Director render a "Cascading Style Sheet (.CSS)" file, which has a .swf reference in it?
Flash 8 .swf files will work with Director. Flash 9 files saved for Flash player 8 and AS2 will work in Director. Flash 9 files saved for player 9 and AS3 will not work with Director.
If you link a Flash 8 .swf to a Director movie, the .swf remains external and can still access additional files like a .css file. So, if you need to use a .css file with a Flash 8 .swf then keep both files external to the Director movie and link the .swf to the Director movie.
Do you know if the next version of Director will work with Flash CS3/AS3 movies?
