Scrolling A Movie Clip

This page will help you make a scrolling movie clip. They're cool for displaying things in your movie. I needed to make this file because of how bad all the other tutorials were for this. This scroller will accomplish a couple of tasks
  • It will be able to scroll any kind of content without having to set anything different in the script
  • you will be able to "throw" the scroller
  • and it will be able to have links in it and change the content of what your scrolling
this thing is actually pretty easy to do just as long as you know about the basic stuff in actionscript like setting variables and movie clip properties.

Here is the completed movie clip:

Looks cool. no? grab the fla here.

I'll do this thing in two parts one is just the scrolling part for those who do not wish to have the added functionality of the throw effect the next will be adding the "throw" effect for those who want that cool effect

» Description:

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.
