Chapter 8. Using Sound > Importing Sounds

Importing Sounds

Flash allows you to import assets that cannot be created within Flash, such as sounds or bitmaps, and use them within your movies. Sounds that are imported into Flash are placed in the Library. The following sound file formats can be imported into Flash MX:

  • WAV (Windows only) The Waveform Audio File Format was developed for the Windows platform and is the standard sound file format for Windows.

  • AIFF (Macintosh only) The Audio Interchange File Format developed by Apple is the standard sound file format used on the Macintosh.

  • MP3 (Macintosh and Windows) (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) offers tremendous compression of sound data without sacrificing sound quality. Original CD data can be compressed by a factor of 12 using MP3 compression.
