Where would I get these types of images?

Because clouds are all around us on a sunny day, I took this picture myself outside my home. If you don't want to use clouds, try to find some desktop wallpaper of skylines, oceans, wooden fences, fire, etc. that you can animate and generate the scrolling image effect. Once you get an image you like, crop the image in an editing program so that the height of the image matches that of your Flash movie or a height that you want.

Be warned that having a large image will increase the file size and slow a computer's speed to a crawl when animating. Animating a large image over several hundred frames is highly CPU-intensive and many people with older CPU/Video Cards will be unable to view the effect when combined with other animations on a Web page.

» 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.
