Points to remember

Here's a recapitulation of the important stuff:

  • The quality of a digital video movie is determined by its internal compression-decompression standard, or codec.

  • The QuickTime tab of the Property Inspector has a lot of parameters for you to set. If your video isn't performing as expected, check the Property Inspector first for solutions.

  • Lingo properties abound for the purpose of controlling digital video Cast members; many of them are scriptable equivalents of the options in the Properties dialog box. Check Appendix C: A Lingo Lexicon or the Lingo Dictionary for a full listing and definitions.

  • You can export a Director movie as a digital video movie, but you'll lose any interactivity. The quality of the final product is once again determined by the choice of codec.

  • The cue point recognition feature of Director works for QuickTime movies as well as audio files. This gives you more options when it comes to synchronizing playback.
