Workshop

 < Day Day Up > 

The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered in this hour. You should try to answer the questions before checking the answers.

Quiz

1:

Which is a better-quality audio format to use for original files AIF or WAV?

  1. AIF, because it was developed for the Macintosh

  2. WAV, because it was developed more recently

  3. Neither, because they can both be the same quality

2:

Where do you place sounds in order to hear them in the final movie?

  1. In the Library, in symbols, or in keyframes

  2. In keyframes (no matter where they are)

  3. In the sound layer

3:

After importing a few sounds, you have to wait longer every time you use Test Movie. What is causing this phenomenon, and what can you do to fix it?

  1. You forgot to select Fast Export when importing the sounds, so you need to reimport and pick that option.

  2. You can only hear the sounds when you select Control, Play. Don't use Test Movie if you have sounds.

  3. Sounds can take a long time to compress. Temporarily change the Publish Settings dialog box settings to Raw and select Override Sound Settings to save time during development.

Quiz Answers

A1:

C. There's nothing inherently better about AIF or WAV either can be high quality or low quality.

A2:

B. Sounds are placed into keyframes, either via the Properties panel (when a keyframe is selected) or by dragging the sound right onto the Stage from the Library.

A3:

C. This tip is a bit esoteric but will no doubt save you a lot of time. Just remember to go back to your normal Publish Settings dialog box settings when you're ready to deliver.
