Project Builder 1

Ultimate Tours would like you to create a banner promoting it's "Japan on a Budget" tours.  The graphics for the banner are complete; now you need to add music and a voice-over.  Ultimate Tours would like a musical background to play continuously while the banner is displayed, andthey have also provided a voice-over they would like to be synchronized with text on the screen.  Finally, Ultimate Tours would like an accent sound to play when a visitor clicks the navigation button on the banner.

Sample Solution

  1. Open fl10_5.fla, then save the file as FL_C10_PB1_ultimatetours10 (your username) to your Flash Chapter 10 folder on the server
  2. Test the movie and note the text banner that appears across the screen against a series of background images
  3. Insert a new layer above the text animation layer, name it 'audio', use the Properties panel to add the sound named 'ultimate_background' to frame 1 on the layer, then set synchronization to Event
  4. Set repetition for the sound to 2 to ensure the music plays the entire time the banner is displayed
  5. Display the Library panel, open the movie clips folder, then open the words movie clip symbol in the edit window
  6. Insert a new layer above the text layer, name it 'audio', use the Properties panel to add the ultimate_voiceover sound to the layer, then set synchronization to Stream
  7. Move the keyframes that control when each word of text appears on the Stage to synchronize with when the word is spoken in the voice-over
    [Hint:  Use the playhead to hear the streaming sound and use the wave pattern as a clue to when a sound is played--drag the keyframes on the text layer to create the synchronization effect]
  8. Return to the main Timeline, unlock the button layer, then edit the arrow button to play the Switch Small Plastic sound when a visitor clicks the button
    [Hint:  Be sure to specify an Event sound]
  9. Return to the main Timeline, test the movie, then close the Flash Player window
  10. Select frame 1 on the audio layer, then use the Edit Envelope dialog box to reduce the volume of the ultimate_background sound
  11. Test the movie
  12. Save the movie
  13. Publish the movie
  14. Post the movie to the Hulk server
