Lesson 13. Markers and Navigation

Lesson 13. Markers and Navigation

In the previous lesson, you created the introduction and main menu for a multimedia art gallery by adding sound, graphics, and menu options that change into other images when you move the mouse over them. In this lesson, you will add scripts to these menu options that will allow users to go to the corresponding work of art in the gallery when they click a menu option.

You will also create the destination screens that contain the artwork and the markers that identify the locations of the artwork in the score. Finally, you'll use relative markers to allow users to navigate backward and forward through a series of screens in the presentation.

Figure . Director allows you to mark any part of your movie so you can go to it with a mouse click. In this lesson, you'll create the screens that contain the artwork in the multimedia art gallery. Then you'll insert markers in the score and assign each of the works a location in the presentation so you'll be able to navigate to each work with a click of the mouse. Using markers and creating your own navigation controls for presentations are skills you'll rely on in all the Director projects you'll build on your own.
