3D Sounds

CopperCube supports playing back 3D and 2D sounds, making it possible to create great atmospheres and background music. Depending on the publishing target, Coppercube supports the following sound file formats:
Note: When using the Flash (.swf) publishing target, CopperCube only supports playing back .mp3 files. When using the Windows (.exe) target, the player supports all file formats except .mp3 files. There are free tools like Audacity available which can convert between these file formats (for example from .mp3 to .ogg).
