Import Sound Clips Dialog Box

The Import Sound Clips dialog box lets you import sound clips.

You can import sound clips (.wav, .aif, .aiff, or .mp3) into an audio track at the first frame or at the current frame. If the sound clip does not already exist in your project, Storyboard Pro copies the file from its present location to the audio folder in your storyboard project folder. You must work in the Timeline view.

IMPORTANTIt is not recommended to work .mp3 files as it is a compressed format. Long .mp3 files may not properly sync with the action in your project.
