I am having some problems with getting one director movie to
play from an other one.
The new movie opens, but it always fails to load the xtras.
Do I have to do something special to get it working?
The xtra it fails to load something called vector shade. I
assume its the a default xtra that is used for the vector shapes in
director. I have no "custom" xtras in any of my files.
starting to really really hate the scripting documentation in
The best practice is to use a stub projector and an external
Xtras folder. The stub projector is the runtime engine for all of
your movie files whether they are .dir or .dxr. Neither a .dir or a
.dxr can have xtras attached. You can add the xtras directly to a
projector, but, if subsequent movies need an xtra that is not
needed by the first movie, that has been turned into a projector,
then that xtra is not available.
