Tempo,fps in director
Posted on 1998-10-28
To start, I am using director 6.5 on the G3 macintosh at 333MHz. I am having trouble changing my (frames-per-second) tempo in my director movie.
My director movie consists of an 8-bit, 3D animation which has been imported as "pics" from another application (specular infini-d). The 3D animation is small (approx.320x240pixels).I have also tried 16-bit animation and the same problem occurs. I am having trouble with the tempo, whether I change my fps to 5, 30,or 480 there is no change in the playback rate, it does not play faster or slower, and even if I have my fps at 30(which I always use) it looks as though its playing at a default 15fps. I checked to make sure the tempo setting isn't locked, I have tried re-importing those same castmembers into a new movie: same problem.
I have tried changing the tempo in a different and more complex director movie and it works fine. Therefore, it must have something to do with the 3D anim, but I am at a loss for any other tests to find out why/what the problem is. I know it has nothing to do with the infini-d application or how my 3D is rendered because I am importing to dir as "pics", the fault is within director itself.
If you have any answers, comments, etc., it would be of great help (asap).
