What kind of movements are you talking about?

Character deformation movements? Objects? Or camera movements?

Motion of objects will just transfer into director on play without scripts.

Camera movement won't. U will have to either parent the camera to a null and export that, or just export the null and take its positions and apply it to the camera in director.

This applies to LIGHTS, too. Parent them to nulls, animate the nulls, all is happy in Director land.

Scale animation of objects may prove to be challenging, as well. Here I found that parenting an object that had to be scaled AND moved or rotated at the same time (that is animated) to a null allowed the object to be scaled, while the translation and rotation were performed by the null.
