2 Monitor Setup?

2 Monitor Setup?

2 Monitor Setup?

I am having trouble getting my projector to run across a 2 monitor setup. I have the movie set for 2304x768 (1024x768 and 1280x768). The projector keeps trying to put the projector to the left of the first screen no matter what Movie Templates I set. (Dir MX 2004) Does anyone have a solution for me or a good reference point? I have not worked in Director in a year or so and I could use some help.


RE: 2 Monitor Setup?

You can set the stage position by using drawRect and rect.

Say you want to display a 480 x 360 movie in the centre of your 2nd monitor. The stage position coordinate will be 1424, 204, 1904, 564 (left, top, right, bottom):
on prepareMovie
   tRect = rect(1424, 204, 1904, 564)
   _movie.stage.drawrect = tRect
   _movie.stage.rect = tRect
end prepareMovie

RE: 2 Monitor Setup?

If I wanted the Movie size to be 2304x768 would it be:

on prepareMovie
   tRect = rect(0, 0, 2304, 768)
   _movie.stage.drawrect = tRect
   _movie.stage.rect = tRect
end prepareMovie
