Layers with sound

Jan 14, 2013

Hi everybody,

I'm creating a slide with 5 buttons. These buttons are basically small images. When you click them, a layer will be activated with a bigger version of the image and a voice-over playing in the background. Then i have an exit button that closes the layer. This technique is used for all 5 buttons. 

What's the problem: When i have clicked button 1 and the layer has opened en the sound has played and i close it again. I have the idea that the voice-over doesn't rewind back. Cause when i click button 1 again, it doesn't play the sound no more, it's already at the end of it's timeline.

Does anybody have a idea on how to get the sound to play over and over again, everytime you click button 1. Be aware that when clicking the button the sound is in a layer that is made visible with an image. 

Any help is welcome.

Best regards,

Dick Coppus

I would like to revisit this question if I might - I came up with the same solution, but don't seem to have the correct results...

What I am experiencing:

  1. If I close the layer in the middle of the narration, then when I reopen the layer, it plays from the beginning - GREAT.
  2. If I close the layer when the audio has finished for that layer, then when I reopen the layer it doesn't play the audio.  However - if I click around on the scrub bar, then the audio will play...

HELP! ;->
