Sounds can be played into different formats within a Flash movie: Event Driven and Streamed.
An Event Driven sound is a sound that is started due to an action in the Flash movie. This could be a mouse button being clicked, looped music clips or an ActionScript calling for a movie.
- Event Driven sound effects have to be completely downloaded before they can play. Large sound files will take longer to download. Bear in mind the download time when creating complex and long sound effects. The great thing is that when a sound file is completely downloaded it can be re-used throughout the movie repeatedly without needing a second download.
- When an Event Driven sound begins to play it will continue to play until it is finished. This means that if a user starts a sound playing and then clicks a button in the movie to go to a different section of the movie, the sound will continue to play until it is finished.
- An Event Driven sound can only be inserted in a single frame, irregardless of how long the sound is.
