Doing further researched I found that the AVI files are highly compressed and as a result of this they slow down once they are imported into Director. I then reverted back to my original idea of using quick time videos.

For example by rolling a cursor over the spinning blades in the main menu, the role over changes to, 'story', 'images', 'sound' and 'Video'. Images Throughout all of this assignment I have used jpeg images. The reason for this that the image size can be kept small and you can still retain the same image quality.

Conclusion

A bit map does not need to contain a bit of colour-coded information for each pixel on every row. It only needs to contain information indicating a new colour as the display scans along a row. Thus, an image with much solid colour will tend to require a small bit map. Because a bit map uses a fixed or roaster graphics method of specifying an image, the image cannot be immediately re-scaled by a user without losing definition. FILE TYPE EXTENSION DESCRIPTION Bitmap .bmp Bitmap is a window format for bitmap images Flash Player .swf Flash Player files is exported Flash movies. The movie is flattened into a single layer and scene, and all animation is converted to frame-by-frame GIF Image .gif Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) is a bitmap image type that uses "lossless" compression. This type of image is best for images with large areas of solid colour. JPEG Image .jpg JPEG Images that use "lossy" compression. This type of image is excellent for photographic images. Quick Time Movie .mov Quick Time is a multimedia and video format created by apple computers. Flash imports it with a link to the original file. WAV Sound .wav WAV is an audio file format created by IBM and Microsoft. This is the only audio format that can be imported in window versions of flash.
