I know that Director is designed to be the "master" of the
two programs, but I have an application in Flash that I would like
to use Director as the "follower," instead. For example, Director
would navigate in a 3D world, then turn control back to the Flash
program, as determined by the location one was at in the 3D world.
I have only three "locations" that one can navigate to, and
the Director file would be pretty much just an animation to one of
the three locations. Once a button is clicked, the proper location
would be passed back to the flash file for continued processing,
however, the user would be able to navigate to many other areas in
the 3D model, only finishing at one of the three pre-programmed
locations. Free-navigation is allowed, but the endpoint must be one
of the three final points.
I am proficient in AS, and have already done the AS coding. I
am trying to add a 3D interface, with "real world" type of
navigation available to the user.
If this is possible, I'd be grateful to be told. I have not
yet purchased Director (and the upcoming release of D11 seems to me
to be a reason to hesitate even more). I was thinking that I could
send the data through an XML file, but I was hoping it would be
possible to just pass a variable back directly to the flash
