2 audio files or 1 - Macromedia Director Basics

I am creating an animated film clip for a short animated film - shockwave for web. The audio must sync with the action. I'm wondering, should I have my music soundtrack in one channel and the SFX in another - or would it be best to pre-mix all the important stuff into the audio file (for example, footsteps that need to be perfectly in time with the music)? I figured I'd need to use cue points in the audio file - are there any clever tips to make it sync seemlessly?...

    yea, merging sounds would also reduce overhead a bit.


    if there are natural pauses in the animation sequence, you can insert
    cue point waits there.

    without embedded cue points you could hard code sound times to sync
    animation to with a seperate version of this score script for each time.




    on exitframe
    if sound(1).currenttime < 12000 and sound(1).currenttime <> 0 then
    go to the fame -- wait for 12 seconds et
    else
    -- play on to next frame
    end if
    end


    -- 0 time test for the case sound has ended
