Handling Multimedia Files in DataBases (DBs)

From Planimate Knowledge Base
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Planimate can play media files from within a database. It achieves this by extracting the files into a directory called PL_Media under the model working directory.

When a media file which is not in the working directory is first selected in a Paint-Video object, Planimate offers to copy it to the model's database. If this option is cancelled,Planimate will maintain a HARD full path spec reference to the media file instead. This will make it awkward moving the model but may be useful in a fixed setup/demo if media is being played from a CD-ROM.
