AVI Object... how do you bring in a file?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Sun Dec 13, 2009 11:21 pm

Video is pivotal to my prototype. I selected the .AVI object but I don't see where I can insert an actual AVI file.

Also, is there any way to get rid of the graphic timeline under the video? It's really a scene killer.

No, there is no way to get rid of the controls. It has been submitted as a feature request before.

I can live with that, but how do you actually insert an AVI file? I see no where to actually open one and insert it with the AVI object.

You use an action in the event sheet to load a file at runtime.

I'm not sure I'm doing this right (I'm sure I'm not).

I go to load file in events on the AVI object using "on load", I then grab the file in it's entire name (location and all) but it's saying that Construct doesn't recognize this file type.

Okay, I've got it now. Now I just have to figure out how to get the position to look right inside my frame. For some reason it won't position normally.

Hmmmmm... seems like there is a resize issue. The video seems to want to be fullscreen even when I resize the width and height in properties.

Would it be accurate to say that you can't resize video in Construct? Meaning that I'd have to resize it myself prior to putting it into Construct?

I ask because I could do that in MMF2 Dev. No big deal if I can't though.
