PhotoCaster Platform Change


For additional savings, check out the bundle: AlphaMania, PhotoCaster and Effector Sets 1 & 2 Bundle.

There are two ways to get Photoshop graphics into Director: the PhotoCaster way and the hard way. Before PhotoCaster, multimedia developers and artists had to spend untold hours tediously exporting, indexing, importing, repositioning, renaming, and cursing. Now that PhotoCaster has arrived, those hours have just become free time.

PhotoCaster is an Xtra for Macromedia Director that brings Photoshop files, layer by layer, into Director casts with one click. Each layer appears as an individual cast member, indexed, anti-aliased, properly registered, transparency preserved, and ready to go!


• create individual cast members from Photoshop layers;

• import Photoshop 3.0 or later files directly into Director casts;

• import directly to the score;

• preview layers before importing;

• supports Director 7s alpha channels;

• control color mapping (24-bit, current palette, or custom palette);

• generate a custom palette derived from the layers in a Photoshop file;

• keeps layer registration;

• preserves anti-aliasing between layers;

• flatten linked layers into single cast members;

• optionally ignore hidden layers;

• improved color reduction and dithering;

• dithering to a specified number of colors;

• arbitrary selection of which layers to import;

• works seamlessly with AlphaMania (sold separately) for creation of AlphaMania cast members directly from Photoshop layers (supports multiple layer import); and

• no Lingo required.
