Placing The Pictures

Step two: Putting the pictures in their place
Now it's safe to import your image. Import it into a new movie clip and position it with its leftmost side lined up with the left edge of the screen after you've scrolled as far left as you can. If you place it any farther to the left than this, it may appear as a blurred patch of muck after you export your movie. I don't know exactly why this is, but I presume it's because the x-value of the left edge is more negative a number than Flash normally likes to work with.

Now that you've created your image movie clip, place two copies of it on the main timeline. Be sure to name both instances of the movie clip (mine are movie1 and movie2 - see above). Position one vertically on the stage where it should be. It doesn't matter where the second one is, because you will have to position it relative to the position of the first anyway, using an actionscript command at the beginning of your movie. It should be something like this (again, changing 3557 for the exact width of your image):

Set Property ("/movie2", X Position) = GetProperty("/movie1", _x) + 3557
Set Property ("/movie2", Y Position) = GetProperty("/movie1", _y)

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.
