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.

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.
