Creating Projectors

If you are a Macromedia Director user, you are quite familiar with creating projectors. Essentially, a projector is a platform-specific executable file requiring nothing more than a double-click to start the movie. The term “platform-specific” is deliberate. A Mac projector can't be played on a PC or a Linux machine, a PC projector can't be played on a Mac or a Linux machine, and a Linux projector won't work on a Windows or Macintosh computer.

If you are distributing your movie on a CD, creating a projector would be the preferred option. For example, in situations requiring a cross-platform CD you can create the Mac and the PC projectors, and include them in the part of the CD read by the platform.
