Exporting flash file as .mov but audio is removed

Hi all,

I am tasked with creating a video that will be hosted on youtube so needs to be a recognizable movie file format. However the movie is essentially just text and images so I figured Flash would be the best forum.

I have created my animation, exported it as a .mov using the file > export > export video > option and it plays well but has not captured the audio included. The published swf handles the audio fine.

The sound file is a .wav file. In Library I clicked properties and I can change compression to ADPCM which I read may work but alas no, same results.

Can flash export video and sound in the export video option? If not, what other package would be recomended for important this .mov file and adding sound to it? Has anyone else run into this?

SWF to Video converters are around but costly (without watermarks) and very buggy so I'd prefer a creative suite solution. I am using a MAC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this project is at crunch time!

Many thanks, Steve.

Hi Steve,Alternatively, you can set your audio to "Stream" under the "Sync" option in properties.  Then it will export with the mov from Frame 1.  When the audio is set to "Event", it won't export if it's on the first frame, like you discovered.

Figured this one out in case anyone else runs into it.

When exporting the export starts at frame#2 so if you move your audio track to frame#2 it will export with the video. If it's on frame#1 it will be ignored.

Doesn't make a whole lot of logical sense of course not much in life does so i'll just chalk it up to a nuance of flash!

from the help website... http://helpx.adobe.com/flash/using/exporting.html

Export begins at Frame #2

Depending how the Timeline is structured, the exported video can be a result of any of the following scenarios:

  1. If there is more than one frame on the root timeline, the export will begin from frame #2.
  2. If there is only one frame on the root timeline, then the export will include frame #1.
  3. If there is more than one frame on the root timeline and ActionScript or sound is added to frame #1, it will not be called.

Hi,Kristofer,

I have a problem, I try to export my animation with the audio starting at the 2nd frame ,,Event" but when I am done exporting I watch the video and the sound is really late and it is not syncing as it should be I guess
