Importing Audio

When working with Flash, understand that Flash will let you import audio in a variety of formats. However, Flash has no way to record or create sounds. Therefore, audio must come from external sources. External sources include companies such as, Digital Juice; where you can download broadcast quality audio. All you need is a credit card, and a computer with an Internet connection, or you can conduct audio searches on the Internet using you favorite search engine, and find a lot of audio files for free. One other consideration is creating you own audio, using your computer, an attached microphone, and a bit of imagination. When you import an audio file to Flash's Stage, you will first need to have a specific layer and keyframe selected. When you work on a Flash project, it might be beneficial to bring audio files directly into Flash's Library. That way you have easy access to them when needed. In addition, any unused audio files are purged when you publish the Flash movie.

Import Audio Files to the Stage

Select a keyframe in the Timeline that you want the audio file placed.

IMPORTANT You should always place audio files in a separate layer. This gives you easy access and control over the audio file, once it's been placed on the Stage.

Click the File menu, point to Import, and then click Import To Stage.

Select the Audio file, and then click Import (Mac) or Open (Win).
