Step 6: Tint to background color

Select the layer with the imported .png file in it that is now a symbol. In the effects panel choose Tint and choose a color the same as the background color, whatever it may be.

Done

The edges of the masked area blend pretty nicely. Changing to different colors is easy. You can just change the background color and change the Tint setting of the PNG layer to the new background color. You could work with more elaborate Photoshop masks or using a gaussian or other types of blurs instead of a gradient fills work as well. You could scroll horizontally or experiment with different effects in the Flash effects panel.

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.
