Getting music to pulse/flash/change patterns with Flash Animation??
on Mar 3, 2009 at 5:30:46 pm

Hello all! I'm really new to Flash animation, so I am hoping someone can point me to the right place to get some answers.

I've alwys wanted a flash animation on site that pulsed/flashed/changed patterns with music. Much like the way media player does, but on a banner.

I've never seen this done before. Is this even possiable with Flash animation?
Thanks!

yes, very possible. it takes A LOT of coding, though, and is not so straight forward.

to learn about it, you can explore the concept of "Waveform Visualization". you will have to import several classes, and create custom classes.

here is the 'bones' of what i did for someone. for some reason, i can't get the waveform to show up in Firefox (3.0.6 on a Mac), whereas it does show up in Safari and Opera.

this simple waveform i made all one color(orange) to react in real-time to the mp3 being played. the waveform is running on the bottom of the page.
(note: the moving bars on the right, and the 'pulsing guitar-player' are not reacting to the music)
i have it posted as an example at:

this is not a beginner project! : - )

there are probably tutorials on this type of thing if you are just looking for a step by step guide.

let us know how it works out, or if you need more detailed help.

sorry - i changed the address. try this ( if the effect doesn't show up in Firefox, try Safari or Opera)
but do let me know if it does or doesn't show up, and what browser you used...
