Scrolling content in Director MX 2004

Hi,

I am very new to Director and have just started to build my first movie.  I have set up all the pages and just need to add content.  I have an area of the stage that I want to put the main content but am not sure how to get it to scroll.  Basically the content is a mixture of text, images and flash animations, not one member.  I would like to be able to put all these members into an area, 600 x 350 pixels in size and scroll.

Is this possible?  If so, please could someone tell me how to do it (in very simple terms) because I have been looking and can't find anything about this.  

Thanks,

John

Thanks but like I said, this is my first movie so that doesn't make any sense to me.  There are no instructions or anything with the behaviours.

I don't even know if what I hope to achieve is possible.  I have an area in the centre of the stage where I am hoping that I can have some sort of container to hold text, images and flash movies.  I want to be able to scroll this either using Directors built in scrollbars or a custom one.  Is this possible with Director?

If so, please could you suggest how I would do this.  Again, simple instructions are required as I am thick :-)

Thanks,

John

Behaviors are just scripts.  Set them to type "behavior" in the property inspector, then drag and drop them on the sprite.  It will prompt you for the info it needs. :)  

I might suggest running some of the tutorials to get yourself familiar with base terminology.  Its much easier to help after that. ;)

Thanks, I will have to look at that.

Is it possible to set up a container to hold the content for scrolling?

You can create film loops by copying items in the score and pasting that into a new cast member.  Controlling them gets into more complex lingo though.

Thanks, I will look into that.  A screenshot (edited with photoshop) of what I want to do can be seen at: http://www.designers-paradise.net/images/screenshot.gif

Would it be easier to make this in flash and import it?

Thanks,

John

Well it depends on what you find "easier". ;)

If you already know Flash well then it might.  I don't think overall its easier, but Director has a learning curve for you at the moement.
