This movie demonstrates several ways to display images from a list. Features include the ability to navigate through images with the arrow keys, shuffle the order of the images, start or stop auto playback, and zoom toggle an image so it fills the screen then goes back to its original size and position.
File Format: Adobe Director 11.5
This movie demonstrates the use of DOM (Director Object Model) Lingo syntax to create a slideshow that includes transitions and an indicator of which image is being displayed from the total number of available images.
This movie demonstrates the use of a property list and a timeout() object to display images for a specified period of time with a crossfade blend transition between the images. The crossfade effect does not use Director's built-in dissolve transition effect, but instead uses a behavior that fades one sprite out, while another sprite is simultaneously faded in. This movie may be especially useful for automatically displaying images, one-after-the-other, where a unique duration for each image is needed.
This movie includes methods to play a variety of sound files and formats supported by Adobe Director. Code examples are commented and include: playing and fading sounds; playing regions of a sound file; getting specific sound data information; looping a region; sound queue playback; sample rate-shifting; using cue points; and streaming Shockwave Audio (SWA) files.
This movie includes a cast member that uses a mask, a 1-bit deep bitmap, to mask out part of an underlying video. A 1-bit mask allows any pixel in a cast member to be opaque or transparent, but not partially opaque.
