Chapter 16. Creating a Projector

Chapter 16. Creating a Projector

Up to this point, whenever you’ve created a movie in Director, you’ve played it back in Director. In the real world, however, you can’t expect everybody to have Director installed on his or her computer, and you don’t want to limit your audience to those who do.

For this reason, Director has the capability to create a projector, which is a stand-alone, self-running version of one or more Director movies (Figure 16.1). A projector reproduces the action on the Stage, including all interactive elements, just as it looks and sounds in Director. (Of course, the Score, Cast window, and other features of the authoring environment are not included in the projector.) The only serious drawback to using projectors is that the Macintosh version of Director can only create projectors that run on a Macintosh, and the Windows version of Director can only create projectors that run in Windows. (See the “Platform Politics” sidebar for more information.)
