Set the Width to: 500, and the Height to: 275. Mine looks smaller but that is just for the tutorial :) Go ahead and do it, I’ll wait here. Now you’ll need to download my cloud JPG. Download it, then in Flash go to File>Import, choose All Get Cloud Pattern Files and browse to the JPG and open it. The Cloud JPG is a Horizontal Pattern and is the same size as your movie dimensions. Drag the cloud image so it is directly over the white movie area. Now click on the cloud image and go to Edit>Copy. Then go to Edit>Paste. Drag the copy right up next to the other cloud image, like back to back. Check out my shot. When you connect them it should look like a pattern :) Go to Edit>Select All. Now go to Modify>Group. Right-click on frame 20 and choose Insert Keyframe. Now hold down the Shift key and press the left arrow key until the right side of the whole image reaches the right edge of the movie area. Double click frame 1 and go to Tweening>Motion and click OK. Now double-click on frame 20 and go to Actions. Click on the + button and choose Go To. Check the box that says Go to and Play. Click OK. Now go to File>Publish Preview>Default to test the movie. Now if you see any seams in the clouds, then it’s your job on Step 4 to line it up more perfect! Takes a little practice but it’s easy stuff :) Click here to see what I made!
