Hello, had a quick question regarding the folder path
variable when accessing DVD video files. When authoring, Director
seems to automatically add a hardcoded file Name to the cast member
properties, as well as a folder path to the DVD member properties.
So I am wondering how to handle this - obviously during
authoring the director DIR/projector is on the hard drive while the
video_ts is on the DVD disc. When deployed, everything will be on
the DVD of course.
During my first test, the projector was authored with the DIR
on the hard drive while the DVD was in the D: drive. When I swapped
the DVD to my other optical drive ( E: ) and restarted the
projector, it complained it could not find the video_ts folder. And
on a Mac it looked for a /Volumes/ path which I could not even
manually point the projector to.
So should I copy the video_TS to the hard drive so the
relative path between the projector and video_TS folder always
stays the same? Or does Director ignore the filepath at runtime and
always search the DVD drives on the host machine for a video_ts
folder,regardless of where it was during authoring? The
documetnation is a bit unclear on that part..and of course my goal
is that the projector find the video_ts folder on the DVD disc,
regardless of what drive letter/volume name it is on.
