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.
Let's add sound to our application now. So I have a sound layer and I've actually imported the sound to the Library already. So all I have to do is select the first keyframe of the sound layer and click-and-drag the sound from the Library onto the Stage. Now select the first keyframe of the sound layer and head over to the Properties panel to adjust the syncing method. I'm going to choose Stream this time. The reason I want to choose Stream is because this syncs the sound perfectly with the Timeline. So when I stop the Timeline, the sound also stops, and when I play the Timeline, the sound plays.
This is going to be useful for when you have buttons for this application. So Stream for the option and that's it. Let's test the movie in the Flash Player and see what it sounds like. (Music playing) So now we have added sound to our application. Remember, all you have to do is select the frame where you want to drop the sound and then just click-and-drag it from the Library onto the Stage.
