Hour 17. Using Video > Importing Video

Importing Video

Importing video into Flash is only slightly more involved than importing other media types such as sound or graphics. It really is as easy as selecting File, Import and selecting a video. But just like sound and graphic files, there are different types of video files—each with its respective attributes. In addition, the tasks of making a video look good, play well, and download quickly can all be involved. The first step—always—is concentrating on your source video.

Making Video Look Good

We'll look at specific format types in a minute, but it's worth noting that the entire creation process for video involves many specialties. Even if you don't employ a Hollywood crew, you will always have the responsibilities of sound engineer, camera operator, casting agent, writer, and so on. Also, technical issues such as background noise, camera shake, and lighting all affect the final outcome. There's not enough room in this book to teach you everything about video making. Just consider learning about traditional movie making.
