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.
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!

Depending how the Timeline is structured, the exported video can be a result of any of the following scenarios:
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.
Okay cool, thanks for the response Kristofer, didn't see that.
Thank you so much! I Just solved my problem even 7 years later LOL
You just saved my life XD
This fixed my problem! Thank you!
Thanks you so much, I have spent hours trying to get my animation audio working.
All good now!
Worked a treat! Thanks so much 🙂
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
Help is really appreciated
