SuperCard FAQ

Can I play sound while a QuickTime movie is running?

Yes, and you can even use PlainTalk on top of it, if you have enough RAM. The key to this is to make sure that the QuickTime playback is happening asynchronously. Asynchronous playback occurs when you set the global property movieIdle to true just before playing the movie, and then playing it with the controller showing.

This will allow SuperCard to interact with QuickTime so it can keep processing its own events, such as the playing of sound files, which are always asynchronous in SuperCard, as is using PlainTalk.
