Chapter 11. Adding Text > Creating Field Text

Creating Field Text

Field text cast members consume the least amount of memory of all the text types available in Director—an important consideration for movies distributed via the Web. On the other hand, Director can't anti-alias field text and provides fewer formatting controls for it; you can't insert tabs or set special margin alignments in field text.

When your movie calls for a short passage of small-point text with simple formatting, field text generally works best. Also opt for field text when memory, media space, or network bandwidth for your movie is limited.
