So I've been working on my first flash website for awhile now and I'm stuck on this current problem. I'm trying to make a background that will move at all times and never end. It must also not be interrupted by the user changing pages. Does anyone know how to set an effect like this up?
it could be done several ways, and would depend on how you have structured your site.
in most cases, make the background its own movieclip, that keeps cycling without any stop command.
then, if your site is timeline based, this would be on its own separate layer carried along the entire site.
if your site loads external swfs instead of being timeline based, then just have this same background movie clip on the lowest level ( 0 indice) of the display list - that is- load your 'page' swfs on top of it.
if that doesn't make sense, ask further - or give us more information on how you are setting up your site
