Lesson 24. Using Lists and Multiple Casts > Setting Up For This Lesson

Setting Up For This Lesson

To start, you need to copy several files from the CD to your computer.

1.
Make a folder like your Projects folder, but call it your Work folder. Then open the Start.dir movie in the Lesson24 folder and save it as Catalog.dir in your Work folder.

2.
From the Lesson24 Start folder on the CD, also copy the FreshPpr.cst, DriedPpr.cst, and PeprCorn.cst cast files into your Work folder.

These are casts that contain assets your movie will need.

Note

The Lingo scripts that you will develop in this lesson assume that the cast files and movie files are in the same folder. If they are not, you will not be able to complete the project in this lesson.

3.
Choose File > Preferences > Sprite and type 13 for Span Duration.

Most of the sprites you create in this lesson will be this length. Setting this preference now will save you time in adjusting span durations during the lesson. This 13-frame duration is not important to the way the movie works; it was chosen merely because it was long enough to show the names of the cast members in the score.
