Panning The Sound
Here's the tricky part in making the sound file pan from area to area.
- In the Sound area where all the wavy lines are at, click on the area anywhere with your mouse. You should see a small box there with lines coming from the beginning. See image below:
- You can move the boxes up or down the window to increase the volume or decrease the volume in that part of the sound. The line at any given point is the volume level for that point. If the line is horizonal then the volume for the entire sound will be at that level. You can dd as many as you want and you can scroll till you find the place where you want to add more marks.
- The top box is for the left speaker and the bottom box is for the right speaker. Varying the volume level individually for each box will cause one speaker to be enunciated more than the other causing a simulated 3D Sound effect. See the complete image below for the boxes used on the animation on the first page:
Use the Zoom Out command (see circle in image above) and add these lines and then preview it. The difference is amazing, and this is how many websites have this 3D sound effect for many of the animations. There also custom made simple effects on the menu on the right also. For now, that's basically how "Surround Sound" can be done in Flash 4.
