Chapter 2. Assembling Casts

Chapter 2. Assembling Casts

Director’s Cast window acts as the storage bin for the cast members used in your movie. Cast members may include pictures, sounds, text, color palettes, digital videos, film loops, Lingo scripts, and other types of media. Most Director users create their cast members in external programs and import them into Director, which is what you’ll be doing in this chapter. (Director also provides internal tools for creating certain kinds of cast members: The Paint, Vector Shape, and Text windows, which you’ll work with in chapters 6, 8, and 12, respectively.)

You can choose to view a Cast window in either List view or Thumbnail view (Figures 2.1, 2.2). In List view, cast members are represented by rows and columns of text, much like the details view (Windows) or list view (Mac) of a folder on your desktop. In Thumbnail view, each cast member is represented by a thumbnail image. A small icon in the bottom-right corner of each thumbnail identifies the cast member’s type (Figure 2.3).
