Every time I try to import my music, it says: "One or more files were not imported because there were problems reading them." Do you know how to fix that?

I need help and I hope I found answer;

I want to put 8-bit music and other sound stuff in Adobe Photoshop CS6, but it said:

Could not complete (your request/ video frames to layers command) because Dynamiclink is not available.

I looked all over in Google, even ask my friend, but couldn't find luc. I need to know how to do those.

I have a question .u.
The sound doesn't work for me still .-.
Even when I do CTRL-Enter it doesn't work,
and also whenever I try to extend the frames,
there's no blue line and it's called 'Static', except for the last frame.
help ;v;

Sorry hun, I haven't used this program in years.

May I heartily recomment GOOGLE to you? Trawl it for some flash sound tutorials. Its quite easy and more effective than this outdated tutorial.

Suggestion:

All tutorials tell you what to do, but not many tell you 'why' you're doing it.
So, the attention of my suggestion is when you say to switch the Sync to 'Stream'.

You should explain how 'Stream' will keep the sound synchronized with the animation, and drop frames in the process.
It also plays in the timeline

The reason I say this, is because tutorials that tell me why I'm doing that step, means I can apply it to other methods. Where as when I don't know why I did it, I don't know what exactly it does. And then don't know how to use it completely.

I really need help with this one;I have searched literally EVERYWHERE.
Insert a song to the timeline and blah blah..But I don't know how to hear the sound while I'm editing.Like, when you click to the frame you can hear the sound.My explanation isnt that good but i hope that you got the pointI did that once accidentally and I have no idea how to do it again.
looking forward for an explanation!

I believe you can delete the boxes you create while editing the sound by dragging them off the part of the window with the music squiggles, I think anyway =P

OK this is a pretty good tutorial but how about importing music and keep it's quality as well as the animation quality? Because Stream really sends the sound quality straight to hell while it does keep the animation smooth.

I've been trying to find out for a good month on how to have HD sounds and animations now. Do you know what to do??

how do you add sound to a still frame? just one that has the command "stop()" on it?
Reply
:iconcreatureart:
creatureart Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I haven't messed about with Flash in a good year or so, but you can set add the sound as ';play' on the stopped keyframe, or hand-code it in with actionscript on the stop(); frame.

If you want the music to stop you're going to have to put a keyframe with the sound set to 'stop' somewhere, though. Else the music will keep playing to infinity if I've remembered right, if its set to loop..

Mind, I haven't used Flash in about a year. I'm pretty hazy on some details right now.
