Has anyone experienced areas in the score that seem to be
"dead" in terms of transitions?
I am using Director 11 and doing basic montage animations
with pixel dissolves between (essentially a slide show).
Every now and then, some frames in the score refuse to
implement a transition. The playhead just ignores it, even though
it processes any delay I have set. If I copy the frames and past
them to another place in the score, everything works fine. It's
almost as if the score develops "dead spots"....
I'm guessing that its a memory problem. You are probably
filling up all of the available memory in making all of those
dissolves. You could add an unload command to force Director to
release some items from memory. When Director finds that it has no
available memory for the next screen that you want to show, it
begins the process of removing things from memory, but its not
instantaneous. So if you help it along by telling the movie what to
let go of, your movie should play more smoothly.
