Setting your audio to Stream or Event is a nice feature in Flash, but it is by no means a foundation for syncing your animations with your audio.

It's all about timing! Regardless what kind of animation you are creating, the timing is the key to capturing your audience's attention. And to do that, your animation has to be in sync with your audio. Off beats and mistimed measures only hurts your animations.

First decide on a frame rate for your animation, then decide on the tempo for your audio. That's it! The math looks like this:

(Frames Per Second) * (60 Seconds) = Frames Per Minute
(Frames Per Minute) / (Beats Per Minute) = Frames Per Beat

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
