    Flash repeated background.

    Ive created an animation of a car driving along past buildings - however i want the background to keep on going - a bit like a scooby doo cartoon if you get me?

    I tried duplicating the background but the car just passes throught the origanal background...

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks

    try creating a movie clip and having it loop. then drag that onto the scene.

    I converted the background (which was in many layers) into a movie clip (convert to symbol > movie clip)

    However when i duplicate that - the movie only focuses on the main centre...and the car is only shown on the centre.

    I know its probably something to do with document size but when i made the document wider - it then showed all duplicated backgrounds.

    Hope makes sense

    not sure what this bit means, what are you duplicating? does the background not show?

    thats right, unless you make the backgrounds wider they will be visible if the document is widened on its own.

    the document i have is 400 x 400. This is the original and in the centre. Either side of it i have placed a duplicate of the backfground (i converted to a symbol and placed symbol either side).

    hope that makes more sense? lol
