In this area you will find over one hundred movies written in response to questions by other Director developers. Each movie demonstrates a concept or a feature in a simple manner. There are no tutorials associated with the movies, but the source code is usually fully commented, so you should be able to understand how things work. If not, or if you have a new question that you would like to see treated this way, you can always drop me a line.

There are two sections where you might not find demo movies: Scripts and Xtras.

Scripts contains links to over sixty zipped *.ls files containing scripts and behaviors that you can add to your Library Palette. Xtras contains scripts and movies that rely on xtras. Certain xtras are not Shockwave-safe, so you can't test the movies that use them in your browser.
