Chapter 12. Adding Sound > Recording Sounds in Director (Mac)

Recording Sounds in Director (Mac)

On Macintosh computers only, you can record, or digitize, sounds within Director with the handheld microphone that ships with most Macintosh models. Although Director doesn't have sophisticated controls for top-notch sound production, it does offer a quick and easy way to engineer short sounds for your movies.

To record a sound in Director (Mac):

1.
Make sure that you have a microphone attached to the Macintosh.

2.
In Director, choose Insert > Media Element > Sound.

The recording window opens (Figure 12.37).

Figure 12.37. On the Mac only, you can record sounds within Director.


3.
Click Record and begin recording a sound with the attached microphone.

4.
If necessary, click Pause to pause a recording session; click Record to resume.

5.
When you finish recording, click Stop.

6.
Click Play to listen to the recorded sound.

7.
Click Save and name the sound.

Director places the sound in the active Cast window (Figure 12.38).
