Adding sound to animations

Oftentimes you'll need to work with sound in conjunction with animation, and Maya has the ability to import wave files into the Timeline, so you can animate against sound. So let me show you how to do that. It's really very, very simple. All you have to do is just import the sound. So you go File > Import and then go basically into your workspace or into your project file and find your sound file. Now typically we store them in the sound folder in the project and here I have a file called ScooterAudio_8sec.wav, and when you bring it in, it shows up right there on the Timeline.

So you can scrub and you can hear a frame at a time, or if you want to hear it in real-time, you need to make sure that the Timeline is set to real-time playback speed. And when you do that, you can just play along. So there it is. If you want to you can further modify sounds by using what's called the Trax Editor, which is our nonlinear animation editor in Maya. We really haven't touched on that too...
