Are there any libraries or functions that exist in
actionscript (2 or 3) for importing audio, clipping said audio on
the fly, then exporting the audio?
Like, let's say there's a client app for doing media mashups.
Could actionscript in the swf allow someone to upload an audio clip
to the swf, clip the audio within the swf, then export the new
clip--all on the client side, no server?
One person says yes, this can be done all within the swf.
I'm saying no, not possible.
The reason I'm saying no, not possible, is that there are no
actionscript methods for exporting media out of a swf. The swf
would have to pass the audio clip to a server, which the swf would
then download, which could then be manipulated within the swf--but
the only thing that could export at that point are variables to a
server side device to actually retrieve the original audio clip,
cut it up, then export it. Maybe a flex or php or perl
Who's right? Either, neither? There is honor at stake! :)
in as2 there are several steps that are not possible. in as3:
you can't load a local file to the swf without going through a
server and you can't export a file from a swf without using
