Chapter 2. Assembling Casts > Importing Cast Members

Importing Cast Members

If you want your Director movie to incorporate graphics or sounds created in some other application (such as a background created in Photoshop or a set of sound effects edited in ProTools), you first have to import those elements into a Cast window. Table 2.1 summarizes the file formats you can import into Director.
