Hour 10. Including Sound in Your Animation > Controlling Quality and File Size

Controlling Quality and File Size

Now that you know how to incorporate sound in your movie, it's time to talk about optimizing it for export. A direct relationship exists between quality and file size. If you want the best quality sound, the file size will grow. Conversely, small file size means lower sound quality. This is just a fact. You ultimately need to make a decision as to how you balance this tradeoff. Is a high-quality sound important enough to make your audience sit through an extended download time? Is a speedy download enough to make your audience ignore a low-quality sound? You should be very deliberate in your decision-making process to end up with the best compromise possible.

While exploring this topic further, we'll first cover some digital audio fundamentals and then you'll learn how to apply this knowledge to Flash's compression settings.
