Creating cue points

This section isn't meant to give instruction in using external sound editors; that would be beyond the scope of this book. But the following paragraphs should give you enough information to add cue points using the sound editors supplied with Director 8. For both Sound Forge 4.5 and Peak LE, the cue points are called markers. The Sounds folder includes plenty of sound files, both AIFF and WAV files, that you can practice on.

Sound Forge

Open Sound Forge; then open a WAV file. Determine where you want to place a marker and click there. A line will appear indicating the current location. You can use the right and left arrow keys to adjust the location. When you are satisfied with the location (you can change it later), choose Drop Marker from the Special menu. A dotted line appears at your chosen location, and a marker tab appears at the top of the sound display window. Right-click the marker tab; then select Edit from the pop-up menu. The Edit Marker/Regions dialog box opens. Make sure that the Marker radio button is selected in the Type area. You should give your marker a name in the Name field, and you also have the ability to set the marker location by entering a number in the Start field. When you are satisfied, click OK. The sound display window updates the marker to show the name you have chosen. As a shortcut, you can click the desired location and then press the a key on the keyboard—that takes you straight to the Edit Marker/Regions dialog box.
