I have just began re-authoring a several years old project
originally authored w/ Director 8.5. It is a hybrid project so I am
editing a Mac & PC version. I am using the same computers and
software I originally used to author the projects.
I am, however, not seeing one of my very first cast members
(an animated gif) appear during playback on the Mac when I create a
projector there. All I have done is open the original archived .dir
file and then create a projector and after it finishes view it.
This first cast member shows up fine on the pc when I make a
projector out or the PC project.
Shouldn't the saved .dir file keep all the same xtras since
they were internal?
Also I can't remember if I had "animate in background" turned
on or off when I originally authored. Which will give the best
Why is this member not showing up on the Mac? Help
Director should automatically include xtras required to
members in the movie included in the projector. The
provided in modify / movie / xtras menu, specifies which
needed, you might dowble check this manually adding the xtra
It's possible to import a gif as a bitmap, rather than an
this case the xtra might not be added to the list.
