understanding how to control which resources get copied over

ok, this is all for actionscript/air for ios... this is what I understand:

for any file/folder to even be elgible for copying over, it or it's containing folder needs to marked as a src root -- true?

this means I'm marking folders full of, eg, video files as "source code" -- true? -- which seems a little wierd, but whatever. maybe by "source" we mean "anything the app needs to run"

then, given that a folder is marked as a source root, it's contents WILL get copied unless it's filtered OUT by the resource pattern string

do I have this right?

thanks

That is correct.

To be technical, you are not making it as source code, just a source. So your videos directory is the source ("a point of origin or procurement"1) for the videos used in the application. (If it helps, just think of "source" as meaning sources and/or resources.)
