Tempo,fps in director

Hello,

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).
Thanks. Julie.

hi Julie,

If your movie isnt too big i wouldnt mind trying to run it through the Director 6.5 I have here and play around with the tempo. I tried putting together a little 3D animation movie myself and played with the tempo and it was fine, so i dont think it has to do with the fact that its 3D still, if i saw it i would have a better idea. Let me know

Awaitng your response, I have made more similar 3Danimations imported to dir and did exactly the same techniques and it worked fine. Although, I have no clue why the tempo wasn't working in that particular movie, but for some reason, now the tempo seems to work fine in every movie I create with 3Danim. It must have been a corrupted file of some sort, but now everything works!
Your help is appreciated! Thanks!
Julie.
