9. Sound, Transitions, and Streaming Video

Chapter 9. Sound, Transitions, and Streaming Video

We already have a lot of skills under our belt, allowing us to accomplish some pretty exciting stuff. This chapter builds on that experience to create a television set complete with streaming video and visual transitions. Along the way, we’ll expand our repertoire to include masking and sound editing.

In Chapter 5, we imported a video into Flash and ended up with an 80 KB .swffile that streamed a 2 MB .flv file. In this chapter, we’ll turn a box into a television set, add some buttons to it, and stream three separate videos into a .swf file that is less than 1 KB. To do this, we’ll manipulate line art, use a mask to define the area in which video is displayed, add a video object to the Flash document, and use ActionScript to open a streaming connection for the video.
