I see the name of your hard disk (MainHD) in the ref movie. For
Internet Ref Movies you should use "Add URL", not "Add Movie."
Everything else you are doing sounds OK. Save the ref movie in the
same folder as your movies. When you click Add URL, you can click the
Browse button to locate your file and add it.
Thanks for the reply.
I looked at the paths (assuming you used QTPro, Cmmd-I and Cmmd-J?),
but thought I only saw a series of folders, without the initial hard
drive - will check again.
Still, the idea of a relative path is that a program can find the
common path between the main file (ie. ref movie) and the dependent
files (the alternates). HTML is dumb in that regard, that you can only
start from the main file's location, but other programs, such as
Director, can be transferred from your hard drive to a CD-ROM to a web
server, and even though any external files you've added to it (ie QTs,
graphics) will have their original path all the way to your hard drive
embedded in them, Director can find the common path (ie. starting from
the CD-ROM) and work out the relative from there.
To confirm, you are saying to use "addURL" even for local files?
Will post one more question, based on my experiments. Thanks again for
