Have you tried other file formats? Perhaps encoding to an FLV with Adobe Media Encoder. At that point you could try throwing it in your movie as an FLVPlayback component or doing a netstream.
Thank you for the ideas. I really want to import a WAV but I can't make FLASH CS5 import it. It says "One or more files were not imported because there was a problem reading them." My WAV file is readable by every other program just fine. I made an AIFF of exactly the same audio with the same export settings in PT and FLASH will import that except it changes the speed by .1432%
*Note: This is not an NTSC vs FLIM speed issue otherwise it would be eactly .1%. I am 100% confident my audio file from PT is at film speed and it does import correctly into other programs like Final Cut without speeding up.
I made an export from PT as an MP3 CBR and that audio file speed up even more. It was over 1/2 second off right from the beginning. I don't know how to use the Adobe Media Encoder or what an FLV file is but I am sure I could figure it out. In theory I shouldn't have to do that as FLASH should import audio without changing the speed for any given format.
Again my FLASH setting for the audio file is set to STREAM.
While we are talking about FLASH, I'd like to figure out how to change my timeline to black and white for a given range of frames in the middle of my animation. How do I set this up so the B&W effect affects all the layers in the stack for a given range of frames? I am very new to FLASH so you may have to give me exact steps on what to select and how to change it to a movie clip etc... if that is the way to do this.
Flash always has this issues especially when the timeline is over 30 seconds ;-)
It will always mess up your synch, quality, pitch whatever.
It is no postproduction tool like after effects, its strength are prototyping and preproduction.
You should really consider the option to do your postproduction in AfterEffects (you already have the animation exported),
from there export to flv and load that flv via FLVPlaybayk-component in an empty swf container (if that what your client is demanding)
