Introduction

Here is a tutorial based around my "Simple Scrollbar" turorial but this is horizontal scrolling of a MovieClip. It is also very simple and uses little code, employing the same globalToLocal method. You can check out some examples of how good a sideways scroller can look here


Step One: The MovieClip

Firstly we need a movie clip to scroll. This is simple enough to create, just position all its contents in a organised horizontal arrangement, select them all and "convert to symbol". Then delete it from the stage, a copy will be saved in the library for later use. It helps to have the MC registration point on its left edge.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
