Chapter 3. Building a Score > Working with Sprites

Working with Sprites

You begin to construct a Director movie by dragging cast members from the Cast window. You can drop a cast member into a channel in the Score, or you can drop it on the Stage.

What you’re actually dropping on the Stage or in the Score is not the cast member itself, but a reference to the cast member—a marker that points back to the original that’s stored in the Cast window. This reference to the original cast member is known as a sprite.
