Chapter 6. Advanced Animation > Background Music

Background Music

You will be creating a new movie that will be called by our Stitch splash movie. The movie will consist of a WAV or AIFF file and a switch to turn the music on and off.

Creating the New Movie

  1. Choose File→New.

  2. Uncheck View→Work Area if it's checked.

  3. Select Modify→Movie.

  4. Change the movie size to 150 pixels x 30 pixels. Change the background to the same dark blue as you used in the main movie (see Figure 6–37).

    Figure 6–37. Movie Properties settings for new movie

  5. Decide on which WAV, AIFF, or mp3 file you wish to use. The one used in the example is stitch.wav and is available as a WAV and AIFF file at http://www.phptr.com/essential/flash/stitch/music/. Smaller file size is definitely preferable.

  6. Choose File→Import and locate the file you wish to use.

  7. Save this movie as music.fla in the same directory as your splash screen.
