Looping Sounds

When you loop a sound, you’re instructing the Flash movie to repeat the sound a given number or times, or to loop the sound forever. Some sounds loop better than others. For example, you create some background music, and you want it to continue to play for as long as the visitor is on that particular page, but you don’t want the sound to have a definable beginning or end. Creating looping sounds requires another program such as Sonic Foundry, or Acid Pro. Once the sound is imported into Flash and placed on the Timeline, you can determine the number of loops.

Loop Sounds

1.
Click the File menu, point to Import, and then click Import To Library, Import To Stage, or Open External Library.

2.
Add the looping sounds to the open document.

3.
Click the Window menu, and then click Properties to open the Properties Inspector.

4.
Select the keyframe containing the sound you want to loop.

5.
Click the popup to select Repeat.

6.
Enter the number of times you want the sound to loop (up to 9,999).

7.
Click the popup to select a Loop option to force the sound into an infinite loop.

IMPORTANT The effects applied (including Sync and Looping) will only modify the selected audio file. Each copy of an audio file dragged into a Flash movie is controlled independently.
