I've kinda finished what i want to do and i've just realised i kinda stuffed up. i need to "combine" several director files into one. how do i do that? or is that not possible? any help appreciated!
In addition to Alex's suggestion, you could not import the movies at all. Instead add a frame script at the end of each movie to load in the next one:
go movie "movieB"
Also, if you really want to combine them all into one movie with one score and no linked movies you can copy the score of one from top channel to bottom and paste it into the other movie. It will bring with it any cast members that are in the pasted score.
