Where is the Graphic?

You have now imported the graphic but you can't see it. Why not? Because it is behind the video. If you remember from our previous lesson, the video will always be drawn on top of everything as long as the buffer setting is checked. This is normally good as it make the video playback more smoothly. But while we are positioning controls on our screen it is bad since we can't see our controls.

Let's turn off the buffer setting momentarily while we are moving things around.

Select the Video

Select the Video

Notice that the graphic we imported appears. You might think that you can now move the image around and everything will be fine. Not true. When you click and drag on the graphic you won't be able to see it because of that video buffer setting. So let's turn off the buffer.

 

 

Turn off Buffer

Turn off Buffer

Go to the inspector palette for the video and uncheck the buffer setting.

Turn Buffer Back On

We want to turn the buffer back on since that will give us better video performance. Just select the video again and check Buffer in the inspector palette.
