I have asked a couple questions while working on this project
and appreciate the help I have received. Hopefully this will be my
I have created a project that contains a menu that links to
quicktime movies. Everything works fine on mac and in xp but I have
a problem in Vista. It looks like it is not reading the xtra's
properly or something. When the projector plays it starts with a
quicktime (not DTS) and it plays fine. I have the text keyframed to
come in from the side after the movie is done. When that text is
supposed to animating all I see is red boxes where the text is
supposed to be. Once the animations is done and the text is in its
final location everything looks fine. When I click on a link to a
quicktime movie (set to DTS) it flashes a red box and them sends me
back to my menu (as if the movie isn't there at all).
I am assuming that is a xtra problem. Maybe the xtra's I am
using are out of date? I am using director 11 for mac. If so is
there a way for me to get updated quicktime (and whatever other)
xtras? Or is this an extra problem at all. Could it be a computer
problem (and it so happens to the only vista computer I have)?
Maybe it has to do with the .dll files that I have to add because I
am creating for pc from mac?
BTW: The projector doesn't contain much media, the xtras and
quicktime files are outside of the projector. (But like I said it
works fine in xp and osx).
After a couple hours of troubleshooting (AKA beating my head
against a wall) I found my problem. The user computer did not have
quicktime installed on it. I even have a link from my projector to
install quicktime, I just wasn't thinking. As far as the text goes
I was just missing an xtra, easy fix.
