Source movies for this chapter can be found on the CD-ROM in the “Book Movies” folder under folder 2.

Presentations, unlike animations, are interactive Director movies. Instead of the end users being passive watchers, they need to participate with the playback of a presentation, even if that simply means clicking the mouse to tell the movie that it is okay to continue from a stopping point.

It might help you to know that an inch usually comprises 72 pixels. This is an arbitrary standard; the size of a pixel depends on the size of a user's monitor and other settings. To confuse things further, some computer documentation refers to an inch as 96 pixels.


A typical presentation appears much like a slideshow, wherein a variety of screens are displayed on the monitor, all containing sequential information of some sort. A simple presentation shows a series of ordered slides, whereas a complex one includes navigation buttons that enable the contents to be browsed by the users. This chapter covers all types of presentations, including linear and nonlinear. The first step to every presentation is designing the screens.
