Macs and PCs - Macromedia Director Basics

One more question.... When I'm done with my cd (I'm making it on a Mac) and I do the whole projector thing, I know that I won't be able to view the Mac projector file on a PC... only on a Mac. But can I take all the files that I've created (before turning them into the projector file) and open them on a PC and do the projector thing on a PC so that I have both a PC and a Mac version? I need one of each and was hoping that I didn't have to completely rebuild it ...

    of course you can ! just open your .dir on Director PC and create your
    projector !
    you should check the Xtras though : they're most of the time not the same on
    mac and PC...

    hope this is the answer you were looking for.

    Look through the tech notes on creating cross platform applications.
    There's more to this than just making another projector.

    Also look at the tech notes on creating fast start projectors. Using
    stub projectors will make your project and it's testing a smoother
    process.

    Default tiny stubs

    If total disk space is an issue, like for those doing business card CDs,
    you can make all the director files common to the mac and windows side
    by creating a 'stub' projector for each patform that immediately jumps
    to an external director file that actually contains the presentation.

    there are 'stub' projector notes in the macromedia site
