The Active Object

Written by: Popcorn

TheActiveObject

The Active Object is the prime object in Multimedia Fusion. Probably all applications made in MMF2 have at least one active object.
In the earlier klik products the Active Object was the only object that you could draw graphics for, assign movements to, give alterable values to and in general do fun stuff with at runtime.

Today MMF2 offer quite a few objects that have the basics of the Active Object, but it’s only the Active Object that has the great and powerful Animation Editor.
