Import A Sound Clip Into Flash - 2

Import A Sound Clip Into Flash - 2
Step 4. Choose a Frame. You can have the sound play for any of the three frames of the button (Up, Over, Down). But since we want the sound to be played when the button is clicked, we need to associate the sound clip with the Down frame. Still on the Sound layer, click on the Down frame.

For Flash to play the sound clip, we must add a Keyframe to the Down frame. Click Insert > Timeline > KeyFrame.

Step 5. Drag and Drop. Now add an instance of the sound clip to the Down frame. Go to the Library Panel and click on the icon for the sound file and drag it over to the Home button on the Stage. You should notice the WaveForm appear in the Down frame.

Step 6. Test The Home Button. To test the sound for the Home button, click Control > Test Movie in the Menubar. A preview version of your website will open and you can click on the Home button to hear the sound. Close the preview to return to the Flash workspace and then click on Scene 1 to exit Symbol-Edit mode.

Step 7. Save Your Flash Movie. You can now save the new additions to your movie. Click File> Save.

Note--This tutorial shows you how to add a sound clip to an existing button. However, if you plan to make several buttons from one template, as we did in the last tutorial, you would add the sound clip to the template before you use the template to create the rest of the buttons.
