I am having a little trouble getting my movies to actually
play. When i hit the play button in the control panel the play head
doesn't move! Even when i publish it the movie doesn't play. I have
used earlier versions of director and haven't had any problems so
wondered if its something really obvious that has been added in the
MX 2004 version? Also i first used the program on a PC and now
using MX 2004 on a Mac. Thank you for you time everyone!
I've seen this many times with my students and it's because
go the frame
behavior to a sprite. So, I'd suggest you look at all your
sprites and check what
behaviors are attached.
As a simple test, move your playback head to a clear part of
the score, let's say
this is frame 100. At frame 110 place the 'go the frame'
behavior in the scripting
channel. Then click in frame 100 and press play. See if it
plays to frame 110. If
it does, which I'm 99% sure it will, it means that you'll
need to check the sprites
for a behavior that should not be there.
Or it's possible this is in a #movie script. Hit Ctrl+Shift+U
for "exitFrame" in the handlers drop-down to the right of the
script-syntax drop-down at the top-left of the script window
If exitFrame is listed there then this might be your problem
commenting the entire handler in the movie script.
