printing in director...

i need to print 2 frames (my movie size is- 800-600)
the problem is that the director prints only on half of the page and i must turn the page to print the other frame

can i print 2 frames in one full page? (without turning)


RE: printing in director...

A strategy to print the stage of frame 1 and 2 in a single paper:
1. Create an empty bitmap member (member 13 in the example below)
2. Make the image object of the bitmap member 800 x 1200 (two 800 x 600 stage size)
3. Capture the frame 1 stage image
4. Copy that to the bitmap member
5. Go to frame 2 and capture the stage, then go back to frame 1
6. Copy the frame 2 image to underneath the frame 1 image of the bitmap member
7. Print the bitmap member
8. Erase the bitmap member

You'll need the PrintOMatic Lite Xtra to print cast members.

on printFrames
   printMember = new(#bitmap, member(13))
   printMember.image = image(800, 1200, 32)
   img = _movie.stage.image
   destRect = rect(0, 0, 800, 600)
   srcRect = rect(0, 0, 800, 600)
   printMember.image.copyPixels(img, destRect, srcRect)
   img = _movie.stage.image
   destRect = rect(0, 600, 800, 1200)
   srcRect = rect(0, 0, 800, 600)
   printMember.image.copyPixels(img, destRect, srcRect)
   print printMember
end printFrames
