Sound does change how a user interacts with a Flash movie. A rewarding chime-sound as a user clicks on a correct button is very effective.

Sound is imported to Flash as either a MP3, .wav (Windows) or .aiff (Macintosh) sound file. Sound cannot be edited directly in Flash. An audio editing program will have to be used to create any sound effects.

When exporting Flash files to the web an option can be selected to convert all sounds to .mp3 format. MP3 is the most popular sound compression format currently available. The success of this format is driven by an MP3 file being up to 1/10th of the file size from the original file. This is a huge gain for Flash designers. Now a rich audio file can be used without significantly jeopardizing down load time.

Currently Flash does not import .mp3 or any other audio file above and beyond those highlighted above.

» Description:

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.
