I am *very* new to Director, and have been given a task to
update an existing CBT that was done in Director a while back by
people I do not have access to (group not there anymore). And, the
only updates that need to be made to the CBT are updates to the
I do have some experience with Flash so the Director
interface does not completely throw me, but I'd like to ask this
question to save time.
The application (the one for which the CBT has been created)
interface has changed a bit and my customer wants the CBT to have
those changes reflected in it. As far as I can tell, there is no
specific functionality in Director to do a straightforward image
replacement. So, I am asking advice on what would be the best
method for making such updates.
Thanks much for the help. I am using Director MX 2004.
The most straightforward way is to do it one image at a time.
Click on the image that you are replacing in Director's cast
Note what the name of it is. Press Delete. Click on File,
find the new image. If the new image should be built into the
movie, then make sure the bottom field (Media) has "Standard
selected. If it is meant to be an image that is externally
the Director movie, then it should be set to "Link to
This will replace all instances in the score with the new
image. It is
usually best to now change the name of the new member to the
you noted the old member had. That will make sure that
anything that is
scripted to expect the old image name finds it correctly.
Repeat as needed with all your new media. It is best if the
and the new image are the same size (width x height). If they
then it depends on how the person set things up, but you may
need to go
in and rescale things to match their new sizes/aspect ratios.
