What kind of an image should be used in this animation?

That depends on the type of animation you are using. I chose the clouds for my animation because I liked the effect produced by the clouds. Regardless of what image you choose, make sure that it will look good when animated. For example, the image you choose should include a similar starting and ending feature. Compare the clouds on Frame 1 and Frame 500. Both extremes of the clouds image share a large cloud that makes the transition from Frame 500 back to Frame 1 look smooth. For several animations, I have used pictures of a river, skyline, and more for the scrolling image effect; therefore the image you select depends on the type of image and animation you want.

» 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.
