Note

At the time this book was being completed, a Flash 5–compatible Xtra for Director was still unavailable, although one had been released for Macromedia AuthorWare several months previously. This chapter describes some techniques that might not be necessary when a Flash 5 Asset Xtra is released for Director. The sample movies for this chapter are created with Director 8 and Flash 5, with the Flash SWF files saved for Flash 4 compatibility.


In the previous chapter, you saw how Flash movies imported into Director can be manipulated as sprites—essentially static elements within the Director movie. This chapter covers various methods of transferring data between Flash movies and the Director movies containing them.
