Publishing to Full Screen

Publishing to Full Screen

Publishing to Full Screen

Hi there

I've recently upgraded to Director MX and I'm having a few problems publishing my movie in full screen mode. In the previous versions, what would happen is that the screen would have a white background with the movie centered in the middle with a 1 px border around it, which looked nice and neat.
However, in MX when I publish to full screen, the background turns white but the movie itself runs in a window in the middle of the screen. Needless to say this looks awful as you can see the window border with the title of the presentation above it. If I maximise this window the movie plays in the top left hand corner of the screen rather than the centre, and all the bits outside of the movie's boundary show up as well, which also looks awful.

Any ideas how to rememdy this? I need to play the movie filling the entire screen of some plasma monitors.

Many thanks

RE: Publishing to Full Screen

I worked it out eventually. I didn't realise they had moved a load of the options previously available in 'publish>settings' to a new property inspector window - 'window template inspector'.

Many thanks anyway

RE: Publishing to Full Screen

Last week, I begun to work with MacD MX.  I have that same "fullscreen publising" problem.  If someone could outline the solution in a bit more detail I'd grately appreciate it.  


RE: Publishing to Full Screen

Thanks you guys, I just got it to work, with a bit of searching.  For anyone who may have this problem what you do is:
Click on an empty space in the score or stage.  Then go to the "diplay template" tab from Property Inspector menu and remove title bar obtions and check the centered options.
