Chapter 12. Objects > Attaching Sounds

Attaching Sounds

This section probably could be called “The Sound Object.” However, if there’s one step that’s easy to forget when using the Sound object, it’s the “attach sound” step, so maybe the section title will help you remember. Here’s the process you take in order to use the Sound object.

Sound Object Basics

The idea is that by using ActionScript, you will effectively drag a sound out of the Library and start using it in your movie. Items in the Library that aren’t used anywhere in your movie normally don’t export when you publish your movie (which is a good thing when you consider that unnecessary sounds will add to the filesize). After you import the sound you intend to “attach” into the Library, you’ll need to override the “no-export” feature by setting the Linkage option in the Library’s options menu (see Figure 12.1).
