OPTION 2: Use 2 backgrounds

Another way to get around this is using 2 of the same fixed backgrounds within Flash. Make it a symbol and add it twice in every place that you use it, on separate layers. Align one to be perfectly even with you flash movie. Publish as normal and preview the flash within a browser to find out which way you'll need to nudge your second background. Most of the time, this will be a left or right, 1 pixel nudge of the SECOND background. This usually works, but there are some instances where it doesn't. In this case, use option number 1.

I hope this helped some and I've provided some URLs of what I mean. - The Flash on this page took up most of the bottom half of the page, running into alignment problems with the 2 poles. We used OPTION 1 above to correct this.

» 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.
