Dog-Run-Example.zip

See spot run. This movie makes use of a timeout object to animate a series of cast members (i.e., a Dalmation) that continually runs across the screen. Timeout objects are very precise and allow timing intervals as short as a single millisecond. Timeout objects are indispensable for certain animation tasks where extreme precision for synchronization is necessary.

Alpha-Channel-Example.zip

This movie demonstrates a masking effect that is much like traditional "alpha" masking. An alpha channel is commonly embedded within an image, as an 8-bit grayscale "channel" of data that allows compositing effects. An alpha channel has 8-bits per pixel so any part of an image can be composited, with up to 256 levels of opacity. The masking effect in this movie uses the "Mask" ink effect, rather than alpha channel data that are inherently part of the imported image.

Alpha-Mask-Movie.zip

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.

Skew-Sprite.zip

This Director movie demonstrates a behavior that cyclically animates the skew of a sprite when it is rolled over. User-definable options include skew speed, skew range, and whether the sprite skews "full swing", or not. This is a good behavior to use to indicate that an interface element is interactive.

Animated-Switch-Examples-D11.5.zip

This movie demonstrates the use of frame-driven animation to show a switch being thrown on or off by dynamically changing the cast member used to draw the sprites.

Asteroids-Game.zip

This is an asteroids game by Barry Swan, written as a single Lingo behavior. What is most notable about the game is that it generates everything it needs from the behavior, so there are no resources except a single color bitmap that is updated using imaging Lingo. This is an excellent movie to study for game and graphic techniques. Thanks to Barry Swan for making it available online!

Balloon-with-Moving-Clouds-D11.5.zip

This movie demonstrates a seamless scrolling background that is driven by a behavior that allows the speed of the clouds to be altered. An alpha channel in the cloud image allows the clouds to appear to move in front of the balloon more realistically.
