Chapter 5. SOUND MEMBERS > EXTERNAL SOUNDS

EXTERNAL SOUNDS

Sounds tend to be large and add significantly to the file size of a Director movie. For this reason, you might want to consider keeping sounds as external files and creating a linked cast member that uses this external sound. You can create a linked sound member by choosing File, Import to get the Import dialog box, and then selecting Link to External File instead of Standard Import.

Another method for using an external sound involves no cast member at all, but simply playing a file directly with a Lingo command. You will learn about sound-related Lingo commands in Chapter 17, “Controlling Sound.”
