the first creature to discover water was likely not a fish

An alternate fix — make an Application!

In case the first version of this did not work on your platform — it may have trouble on a PC. If it did work, then ignore all of this.

Some people have had trouble dropping files and having them recognized by the system. If this is the case, try the following download.

You may still need runtime — but this version of the random_linear file is an application not a collective. Which, basically means its bigger. The file is an archive and is just under 7MB. So if you have a really slow connection this will take a few minutes.

Once it comes down, unzip it and open it — double click should do it. After dropping files, you may need to click on the menu once to get the first item into the movie object.

Check for errors in the MAX window and post them in the comments section here.

If you can drop files but don’t see anything and the patch is on (toggle above metro) and a playback mode other than off is selected (check the radio buttons) then make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime installed.

If it is still unhappy — email me.
