DIRECTIONS: You can solve these problems using simple VECTOR cast members, just to practice the lingo code. If you get stumped, move on to next one. ALL MOVIES SHOULD BE ONLY ONE FRAME LONG but make a button to advance you to the next marker with a "go next" script. You will have a total of 3 markers in your movie, one for each exercise. Movies should be 320 x 240 in size.
1. Create a new folder on the desktop titled "yourname_shockwavetest." Now save your Director movie as techex5.dir. After the movie is saved, go to File and select Publish. Check your folder. You have two new files, a shockwave file (with .dcr extension) and an sample html text file: techex5.html.
2. Now open Fetch and drag the shockwave movie and also the .html file over into your public folder. If you do not remember how to do this see this FTP HELP LINK.
3. Check your techex5.html link to see how the movie plays live. The proper URL would be:
