Exporting a pivot animation as an animated gif
Copy the week 2 folder in the Year 9 Multimedia folder in the student share drive.
Paste the folder into your drive
Open the Pivot Source files folder.
Select and open kick.piv
Go to file and save as animated gif.
Save as kick.gif
Importing the gif animation into Flash
All Programs > Adobe Master Collect > Flash Professional
Select Import / Import to stage
Find kick.gif and import the file
Notice that the gif animation is added to the timeline in Flash.
Drag the play head back and forth to see how the animation works.
Save the movie as Kick.fla File > Save
Creating a Keyframe where a sound could start
Create a new layer to the timeline and label it kick audio.
Now drag the play head to where the foot hits the wall.
Select that frame in kick audio layer
Go Insert > Timeline > Keyframe
You have just added a keyframe where the audio will start
Save the movie
Importing a sound into Flash
Now we need the kick sound to the movie
File > Import > Import to Library and select bang6.wav from the sound effects folder
Open the Library window in Flash
Notice that the sound file is in the library with a speaker symbol next to it
Select the keyframe where the sound should go and drag the file from the library onto the stage.
The sound file will now play when the foot hits the wall
Play the movie using the Play button to test it.
Save the movie.
Create you own animation with sound.
Add sound to one of the Flash movies in the folder (not teacher examples)
Export your own pivot movie and add your own sounds.
