Simple Shockwave Moves?! - Macromedia Director 3D

Morning folks! So, I've been using Director for quite a number of years but as yet haven't had any experience with Shockwave 3D... Well, that time has now arrived; and boy am I confused!? I purchased Chrome Lib 4.0 in the hope that a lot of what I need to achieve would be very much drag and drop - to a degree it is, but... I've used the open/close behaviour on a number of occasions - and although I make elements of my model rotate on pivot points, I can't make them move along either the x, y, z axes. ...

    Default Simple Shockwave Moves?!

    Morning folks!

    So, I've been using Director for quite a number of years but as yet haven't
    had any experience with Shockwave 3D... Well, that time has now arrived; and
    boy am I confused!?

    I purchased Chrome Lib 4.0 in the hope that a lot of what I need to achieve
    would be very much drag and drop - to a degree it is, but...

    I've used the open/close behaviour on a number of occasions - and although I
    make elements of my model rotate on pivot points, I can't make them move
    along either the x, y, z axes. Should this be straight forward? In that I
    click on [for example] a drawer, and then the drawer opens along the y axis.

    Also, when clicking on the above elements I'd like the camera to move from a
    wide shot to a tighter one - these cameras have been set-up in the original
    Max file, but I can smoothly make Director move from one camera position to
    another when clicking on the models elements?

    I know I may be asking a fair amount from the above - but it would be hugely
    appreciated if anyone could point me in the right direction!

    Many thanks in advance, Mark B ;-)

    Have a look at the http://nonlinear.openspark.com/tips/3D/. You can find a
    http://director-online.com/buildArticle.php?id=1140, and a
    http://director-online.com/buildArticle.php?id=1141.

    This doesn't answer your question about drawers directly, but it should give
    you a place to start.

    animate everything in max and just use pause and play on whatever event to cause the animation to play. wouldnt this be the simplest way and if your not using it already get 3dpi

    Hi Mark,

    And just to add some links to the mix, look at my tuts (3D there) at:
    http://www.fbe.unsw.edu.au/learning/director/

    I have a Director resources site, with all the Director sites around:
    http://www.fbe.unsw.edu.au/learning/director/resources/

    3D section

    As Tyree mentioned, the 3DPI is a useful too;l to have when working with
    Shockwave 3D content.
