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: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
