Anyone here use Macromedia Director?
Just tryin to find out a few things, can the Pre-Loader be changed to a custom made one??
And, how the hell do I get the Email Form to work?
Anyone willing to offer a helping hand?
Thanks in advance!

Man, haven't heard much about Director in a long time. Lingo is kind of a weird language and with the advances in Flash, Director has sort of gone by the way side... Except for DVD & CD-Rom creation.
Sounds like you're doing something for the web, any chance you could do it in Flash vs. Director? Might be an easier and quicker route for you?

Hi, thanks for replying... I like using Director cause you can do websites and if I decide to make a promo CD-Rom its just a matter of making a Projector file you know?... plus I have everything done and working.. just those two things I'm trying to do you know?... you say DVD Creation, can Director be used to make DVD menus or what???? Sounds interestin!

Yeah, Director is more of a Kiosk, Interactive CD-Rom / DVD tool. Flash is the preffered method of web delivery for most studios, it's much lighter in file size and the flash plugin is much more commonly installed on browsers than shockwave is.(although it might be the same plugin now?) Flash also spits out cross-platform self running projecters for use on CDs, Director only can export either mac or windows projector depending on which version you're running. Anyway, I feel liek a frickin Flash salesman,...sorry about that, it's not helping your problem.
Can't help ya on the Director stuff, sorry. I did some google searchin for you and didn't find anything on either the preloader or the email form. I'm sure it's out there somewhere. Check some Director boards, maybe there's something there?
