Final thoughts

  • You can try different filters for the blurred picture instead of gaussian blur. In particular, motion blur and radial blur will give interesting effects.
  • It may be a good idea to make the blurred picture duotone or grayscale for effect.
  • If you want the animation to be triggered by another element on stage, the key is to assign the onRollOver and onRollOut actions to another button or movieclip. For example, for a button with an instance name of trigBtn placed on the _root timeline, you would change this.onRollOver to _root.trigBtn.onRollOver and this.onRollOut to _root.trigBtn.onRollOut.
  • You can adjust the speed of the animation by modifying the value of the speed variable.

Don't forget to experiment, it's the only way to learn. If you need professional help with ActionScript, please visit for my portfolio and contact info. Happy flashing!

» 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.
