hello one and all,
i have been using soundbooth cs4 to edit and set cuepoints/markers withing audio narrations and then triggering off of them in flash. which was working great until it suddenly stoppped working. so i tested an old flv file under flash to make sure flash was trigger properly and it is. thus i must conclude that soundbooth is not exporting the markers/cuepoints out to the flv file as supposed to. please advise and thank you in advance.
hello one and all,
i am just adding more information to my prior thread because i have more information now. i forgot to mention that besides running soundbooth cs4, it is on a mac pro under snow leopard. originally, i recorded a test audio using garage band directly into my macbook, which was in stereo. then i transferred the stereo wav into my mac pro and added the cuepoints in soundbooth, which i exported as a mono flv. the cuepoints triggered great within flash. then, i directly recorded into soundbooth with a logitech usb mono microphone on only the mac pro and again exported as a mono flv. this was when i lost the cuepoint triggers in flash. so, then i ridded myself of the logitech mono and replaced it with a m-audio mobilepre usb stereo preamp and recorded into soundbooth on only the mac pro again and again exported to a mono flv. the cuepoints again worked fine in flash.
so, at this point, it seems that the recording must be in stereo, which i store the raw stereo in asnd files, and then export to a mono flv for the cuepoints to trigger properly in flash. but that shouldn't be, it shouldn't matter whether i record in mono or stereo for the cuepoints to be properly stored in the mono flv file. i think somehow there is a bug in soundbooth or its export from mono asnd to mono flv. but i am not completely sure about the latter statement because i did not program soundbooth. anyway, those are my observations and i am a little distressed because stereo usb microphones are much more expensive then mono. could it be perhaps the logitech mono microphone had something to do with it? that doesn't make much sense either because the audio side came over fine. anyway, some feedback would be nice. have a nice day.
I just ran a few tests with Soundbooth CS4 and Flash. For some reason, I'm not seeing embedded cue points show up in Flash for any files - I need to look into this more as it's been a long time since I played around with this and my code may be out of date.
However, I was able to see the embedded cue points in any F4V and FLV files I exported from Soundbooth. After you export, the file should be opened back up in Soundbooth. Do you see the cue points in this new file in Soundbooth? If so, the cue points ARE there. In any case, I didn't see a difference in behavior between stereo and mono files. I can't think of ANY reason why the recording device would have any bearing on this output.
yes, i believe so, but i have not done extensive testing. the original posts were based on mono files. just last week, i had the same problem with a mono file so i made it a stereo file and then it exported the metadata markers just fine. so i believe that is the fix. stereo, not mono, files export the markers just fine. try it and let me know. lucas
