Sine and Cosine

Highlight the fill and press F8. Create a symbol named "Reference Point", make sure to make it a sub-movie

We now have a point that will serve as the sine and cosine look up. Now here is where the hack comes in. Sine and Cosine works on a curve… and if you Graph (Sine(theta),Cosine(theta)) where theta = 0 to 2pi, you get a circle. Where Theta = 0, you get (0,1). This is convient for us. So how do we get this to work this way? Motion Tweening with a circle guide path.
Now… The Guide point needs to be moved out of the way. I put it at (0,-50)

We need a motion guide. Click right on "Layer 1", and select "Add motion guide"

» 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.
