Importing Sounds

Flash has great support for audio but no internal way to record or create sounds. You 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 can't create them.

Two basic steps are involved in getting audio into a 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 (as you did in Hour 3, “Importing Graphics into Flash”). When you import a sound, it's stored in the Library like an imported bitmap. The sound appears in the Library where you can access all the sound's individual properties (just like bitmap items).
