Lesson 5. Using Sound > Adding Sounds to the Timeline

Adding Sounds to the Timeline

Importing only adds the sound to the library. For the sound to play in your movie, you must place it on the timeline. Adding a sound to your movie clip is relatively easy, but it is important to make sure you place the sound clip in the frame where you want the sound to begin. You should create a new layer for each sound you want to play in your movie to prevent one sound from overwriting another.

1.
Select the Soundtrack layer of neptune20.fla, and drag a copy of loop.mp3 from the library to the stage.

The sound is added to the first, and only, keyframe of the Soundtrack layer. You can see that the sound is there because a graphic representation (waveform) of the sound appears in the timeline. The sound doesn't actually appear on the stage, but you have to drag it there to add it to the movie from the library.

2.
Choose Control > Play.

When you play the movie, you can hear the sound play once.

3.
Save your movie in the MyWork folder as neptune21.fla.

Next, you're going to make the sound fade in and loop a few times.
