Adding sound to TurboCAD animations can be a bit hit and miss, as the help file
is limited in this respect.  So, using trivial examples, here are a few pointers
which might help.

Adding sound, using AnimationLab, is achieved using the Key Frames Editor only.

1.  A sound file, in .WAV format, is attached to a keyframe of an actor, using
Key Frame Properties (double-click on a keyframe to open, select Ctrl+F or left-
click on Switch to Scenario Script Editor Mode button, and hold).

2.  The actor may be stationary, moving or invisible.  DO NOT use the Key Frame
Editor in combination with the Scenario Script Editor Commands (for the same

        Example 3

Open file Box-2.tcw.

The box is simply animated, using the Key Frame Editor, from frame 0(zero) to
frame 59 (60 in all), along a three dimensional (3D) path.  The directional
changes of the box's path, approximately reflects the timings of sound.

Select key frame 0, then select Key Frame Properties/Sound Source/Wave File:
Box-2.wav (attached).  Remove '.txt' before use.   ::)

Run the Scenario rendered, with Perspective View (under Camera Properties)
turned on.

You might like to run it using the attached template, or create your own.
Remove '.txt' before use.   ::)
