Synchronizing sound

One of the more impressive features of Director is its capability to read cue points in sound files (AIFF and WAV files), QuickTime digital video, and Shockwave Audio. What's the big deal? Cue points are a means of annotating the file and thereby subdividing the linear whole. In this respect, they're pretty much analogous to the marker system in Director's Score window. By providing tempo settings and Lingo that let you test for and track these points, you can create a new degree of synchronization with other media.

Director is unable to create cue points internally; you need to use an appropriate external editor for that. On Windows systems, the Sound Forge 4.0 (or later) and Cool Edit 96 (or later) applications can both place cue points in a sound file. On the Macintosh, use SoundEdit 16 or Peak LE. Cue points are called markers or regions in most of those applications.
