I'm trying to modify many .fla files (in CS3) that have a voiceover layer on them . Because I'm adding or deleting other items on the stage, I need to adjust the audio fo synch with the modified flash file. I have tried deleting frames and this happens - I select the unwanted frames, such as frames 200 to 300 of a 500 frame file. Then, the audio from frames 300 to 500 (at the end of the file) gets deleted instead.
I need to create gaps (like 200 frames of no sound) in the audio (.wav) file so I tried adding blank frames. When I click on "insert frames" in the middle of the timeline, Flash adds the new frames to the end of the sound timeline.
I also tried adding a keyframe at the beginnig of the range and Flash deleted all the frames after the keyframe.
It looks like any modification to the sound/audio layer only affects the end of the timeline. How do I modify sound parts in the middle of the timeline? I know this can be done but how?
Details: The audio layer (.wav) runs the whole length of the Flash file. The .wav file is a sound file in the Library; 22kHz Mono 16-bit 27.4s 12.1kb. The files were created in CS3. These files work fine.
You can't cut and/or paste in a sound file in Flash. Flash just sees it as one continuum. From your description it sounds like you should take the original audio file and edit it outside of Flash using an Audio application and cut it up into several smaller files. Then you'll have the flexability that you need to get your sound to sync with the new images.
