Chapter 8. OTHER MEMBER TYPES > ADDING NEW CAST MEMBER TYPES WITH XTRAS

ADDING NEW CAST MEMBER TYPES WITH XTRAS

Xtras enable third-party companies to develop programs that add to the functionality of Director. Sometimes they add new Lingo commands. Other times they add the possibilities for new types of cast members. Many times they add both.

Xtras that enable you to use new types of cast members are called asset Xtras. Some of the cast members that you might think are built in to Director are actually made possible by asset Xtras that come preinstalled with Director. Examples are QuickTime 3 members, Flash members, cursor members, and even vector shape members.
