Troubleshooting Flash Movies in Director

  • Various versions of Director's Flash Asset Xtra support different versions of Flash. Flash 2 is supported by Director 6.5 (the Xtra was available as an accessory to Director 6.0.2). Flash 3 is supported by Director 7. The update to Director 7.0.2 includes some support for Flash 4, but does not support features such as Load Movie. Flash 4 is supported by Director 8.0; a further upgrade to Director is necessary for Flash 5 support.

  • Using sound in Flash cast members of Director movies can cause conflicts in the sound channels. Macromedia's recommendation (technote 14115) is that your sounds should be controlled entirely within the Director movie—not inside Flash cast members. You can trigger sounds from Flash cast members by sending events to the Director movie.

  • Many Flash sprites simultaneously animating seriously affect all aspects of movie performance. Whenever possible, combine multiple Flash sprites into a single sprite. Even Flash sprites that have only a single frame in their timelines are considered animated; ensure that their static property is set to true.
