Chapter 15. Using Xtras > Preparing the Movie Xtras dialog box list

Preparing the Movie Xtras dialog box list

Before you create a projector or Shockwave movie, you need to account for all the Xtras used in it. The Movie Xtras dialog box displays the Xtras required for the current movie. Unfortunately, this list is not always 100 percent accurate, because some Xtras are added to it only at the point where they are used in your movie, and unlisted Lingo Xtras are never added automatically. In these cases, you should add such Xtras to the list manually.

Similarly, you should manually remove all Xtras that you know are not required by your movie, because Director won't do this for you. When you create a sprite that requires an Xtra, for example, Director adds it to the Movie Xtras list (Figure 15.14) but won't remove the Xtra if you remove the sprite. Be sure to do this housekeeping chore before you create a projector or Shockwave movie, so that the list truly reflects all required Xtras.
