Creating a Clickable Web Link

Instead of having a website open automatically when a certain frame plays (as you saw in the preceding exercise), you can create a visible link. When a user clicks the link, the linked URL will open in a browser.

  1. Open a text editor that allows you to create plain-text documents (not rich text) and then select a font and text size.
  2. Type the message that you want the audience to see in the target movie. For example, type Click here for more info.
  3. Save the file and then open it in QuickTime Pro.
  4. From the File menu, choose Export (Command-E is the keyboard shortcut).
  1. Save the file and then open that newly exported text file in your text editor. Notice that QuickTime Pro has added the descriptor and time information.
  1. Save the file and then open it into QuickTime Pro.
  2. Choose Edit > Select All; then choose Edit > Copy.
  3. Open a target movie in QuickTime Pro and choose Edit > Add to Selection & Scale.
