Import flash buttons

Hi I would like to import buttons from Macromedia Flash MX, into Macromedia Director MX, in order to use it in a director movie. The flash buttons from the Macromedia Flash library are much more varied and nicer than the standard button in Director. How can I do this. Thanks in advance.

RE: Import flash buttons

From Director 10 (MX 2004) the default button in Director has become Flash button component, so it's just one click to have Flash button component on Stage.

But for Director 9 I think you have to do it just like normal Flash movie - export it as a SWF and import it into Director.

So kennethkawamoto how exactly am I going to get the flash button out of the Macromedia Flash MX program into the Macromedia Director MX, copying and pasting perhaps? Thanks in advance.

RE: Import flash buttons

Just place your button on Stage in Flash and export an SWF, then import it in Director. That's it.
