Importing Sounds

Flash has great support for audio but no internal way to record or create sounds. You'll need to find an existing sound, have one provided for you, or use sound software to record or create your own. This simply means that, in Flash, you can import sounds but you just can't create them.

Two basic steps are involved in getting audio into your Flash movie. First, you need to import the sound. Then, you need to decide where and how to use it. This is similar to importing raster graphics (like you did in Hour 3, “Importing Graphics into Flash”). When you import a sound, it's stored in the Library like an imported bitmap. But a sound is not quite a symbol. Rather, the item in the Library contains all the individual properties of the particular sound (just like bitmap properties).
