Preparing Graphics for Multimedia: Setup for Interactive Elements Between Photoshop and Director (Part 2)
Now, your functionality is complete. You have given all of the necessary commands to your text menu. Once the user starts using your application, the text will respond visually to all of his mouse interactions, looking like it is responsive to his movements. Behind the scenes, the cast members are changing back and forth in relationship to what commands you set forth. Once the user clicks down and then releases the mouse button (initiating a mouseUp command), the program will jump the user over to where you have indicated Section1. Repeat this process for all of your interactive elements.
In future articles, I will show you shortcuts on how to create these interactive templates that you can use over and over again, without having to re-create all of these steps every time you want to add in this functionality. Until next time, I hope you have benefited from seeing how you can add in professional-looking interactive elements to spruce up your next project. Good luck.
