Embedding assets

Many applications built in Adobe® Flex™ use external assets like images, sounds, and fonts. Although you can reference and load assets at run time, you often compile these assets into your applications. The process of compiling an asset into your application is called embeddingthe asset. Flex lets you embed image files, movie files, MP3 files, and TrueType fonts into your applications.

For information on embedding fonts, see Fonts.
