In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
In this movie we'll look at adding sound to buttons. I've actually added sound to four out of five of the buttons on the Stage, so we can test the application and see what it sounds like. So I'll rollover the trees on the left and all over the other buildings and you'll hear the sound effects to the buttons. (Beeping) So as I rollover the buttons the Over state plays a sound effect. Let's add the sound effect to the final button. I'm going to double-click the buildings on the left to enter the Timeline.
I'll create a new layer, call it sound, I'll add a blank keyframe to the Over frame by pressing F7 on the keyboard, and then all I'm going to do is click and drag the Flash Beep sound from the Library onto the Stage. That's all there is to it. So I'll test the movie again. Roll over the buildings. (Beeping) And there's the sound effect. For button's sound effects, I recommend using little to no compression on the sound. This sound sounded a little strange when I tested it with MP3 compression.
(Echo-y beeping) So for that reason I switched the Compression to Raw. (Beeping) And that way the sound effect is really clear.
