Step 7c: The Sound Layer

Insert a blank keyframe on frame 1 and 4 of the sound layer.

Now, you need to import a sound clip. Do this by choosing, File>Import. Select the .wav file and hit OK. Once the sound is imported, click on frame 1 in the sound layer and drag an instance of the sound clip onto the stage from your library. If your library is not open. You can open it by choosing Window>Library on the menu bar.

With that complete, double-click frame 1 and in the frame properties dialog box, select the sound tab. Set the effect to "custom", the sync to "event", and the loops to something high, like 1000.

Save your file, and export the movie as sound.swf

You are finished!

This is a great little tool to add interactivity to your movies. I know this seems like a long and drawn out process, but after a few tries, you'll be able to create these in under 30 minutes. I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial, and if you have any questions, or find some cool way to modify it, please let me know!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
