Hi-

I have a real perplexing problem.

The Usual Suspects:
ScreenTime 2.2,
FlashMX,
Wintel box running 2000 pro.
Single monitor.

Okay- so, all is well and fine but one, and only one sound, loses synch. It previews fine in Flash, plays fine in a SWF, and even is correct in the installer preview pane created by ScreenTime.

It is only this one sound ( a bass, doubles on the downbeat with a slight delay in the saver only.)

I have tried a lot of different things in Flash, modified the source clip, reimported, etc, etc, etc.... Also, ScreenTime does not seem to know. I am trying a few boards in persistant hope.....

I can speculate but need a real life work around (short of losing the clip.) So, I am throwing myself on the mercy of the community in hopes that someone, somewhere, may have a work around.

Save me on the Saver???

Thanks for any thoughts!
Kate

I think ScreenTime is controling sound from swf/flash file.
Check sound control settings in ScreenTime. I did not tryed/used ScreenTime.

I got this info from their pdf manual (goto settings and setup installer)

Strangly, all looks good here. there is not a lot that can be tweaked. I think i have memorized the manual at this point. <grin>

Thanks so much for doing the leg-work on that, however! very kind!

I am thinking the problem is in how it complies the saver. the oddity comes from the fact that all sounds are fine, save the music clip in question. It is alike in format, event method, settings, etc. It is not longer than the other sounds. I am throughly baffled.

I have found other bugs in ScreenTime and have found ways to adapt my project so that i do not hit those sticky places. This one is the last stand.

again- thanks so much!

EUREKA! Got it. actually an amazing Flasher and great guy I know stepped up to the plate on this one.

The short of it is that sound, after frame 600, gets honked up.

So, I guess I’ll have two savers, rather than my one, as mine is 1200 frames.

Cheers-
