Lesson 11. Enhancing a Multimedia Project > About movie and sound files

About movie and sound files

In addition to using movies and sounds with buttons, you can use media clips with your PDF documents in a variety of other ways. The movie tool in Adobe Acrobat lets you add both movies and sounds as playable clips in your document. You can also assign movies and sounds as actions that automatically play when you click a link, bookmark, or open a page.

When you add a media clip to a PDF document using the movie tool, or when you add a movie clip as an action, the clip does not become part of the document—the document simply contains a pointer that references the media file. If you plan to distribute your PDF document, you must be sure to include these sound or movie files along with the document. However, when you add a sound clip as an action, the sound clip does become part of the PDF file; in this case, you do not need to include the original sound file.
