Hello everyone, first, let me show you how you should make a moving background.
First, grab a background file, like the one I have received from my teammate. Next, copy it, and place it side by side.
You will soon find inconsistency at the edges. That’s fine, all you have to do is copy and paste small parts of the background to cover it up, Show in the picture.
And there you go, you now have a background that you can easily loop into itself. Start moving the picture and stopping it on the 2nd part, and then the picture will loop onto itself.
However, just one layer of background is not enough
You need to have a 2nd background that scrolls SLOWLY in comparison to the foreground that scrolls fast.
To do that, it’s simple, just inflate a picture, and make it scroll as the flash animation goes on.
However, you will soon come across a problem when you animate this in flash, how do you STOP animating it in flash?
To do so, you need maths. First, take a note of how many frames your ‘loop’ animation takes. In my case the background loop takes 105 frames.
Next, find an ‘end’ point for the animation: For example, the background animation will end at frame 325.
so, 105 x 3 = 315.
so it takes 10 more frames of movement,
So what you do is, create a new layer, and copy the ORIGINAL non moving background picture into frame 315, and animate it for 10 frames.
It will look like something Below.
