Chapter 2. Assembling Casts > Creating Casts

Creating Casts

Whenever you create a cast in Director, you first must decide whether to make it internal or external. Director always saves all internal casts as part of the movie file itself. The program automatically creates one empty internal cast when you open a new movie (Figure 2.4). External casts (Figure 2.5), on the other hand, are separate files stored outside your movie and can be shared among Director movies. You must link an external cast to your movie before you can use any of its cast members. (See “To link an external cast to the current movie” later in this chapter.) Each cast, whether internal or external, appears on its own tab in the Cast window, or may be moved into its own separate Cast window.

Figure 2.4. Internal casts are stored inside the Director movie file.
