Chapter 5. Sound > Updating Sounds

Updating Sounds

Consider this scenario: You've completed your movie, and everything looks and acts just the way it should. The soundtrack and all the sound effects are perfect—or so you think. However, after reviewing the movie, your client decides that one sound needs to be changed. You're horrified, knowing you've used more than 50 instances of it in your movie. Opening the authoring file and manually fixing the problem will take all day. Lucky for you, Flash has found a way around this problem. All you need to do is update the master sound, and every instance of it will reflect that change. You can do so in any of the following ways:

  • You can use an external sound editor to edit the original sound file (the file used to import a sound on which the master sound is based) and then have Flash "refresh" the master sound in the authoring file.

  • You can import a new sound to replace your original master sound.

  • You can open the master sound directly in a digital audio program from within Flash. After editing and saving it, the master sound will be automatically updated in Flash.
