Ken, I'm an old timer Director user as well. I don't think I've ever
seen a comparison quite the way you described it. Frames are like cards,
From my point of view, I've grown to simply accept the metaphor of each
environment as its own thing, but I guess I can see where a diehard
x-talker might want to create some form of cross-reference metaphor.
The score is like a stack... huh. I suppose it is, in fact. Just never
thought of it that way. ;-) I guess I've always been an animator at
heart anyway. Personally, I had a a harder time with Rev at first -
partially because it wasn't driven by a timeline.
Everybody comes at this type of work from a different angle, I guess.
