Animated Flash-Only Thumbnail Gallery II


Press F8 again to create another movie clip with the previous clip (with both the background and the image) inside it. The reason that we nest this this way is so we can animate the image and backdrop together inside this movie clip’s timeline without the two moving independently of each other.

Assign an instance name to this movie clip; we haven’t needed it with the others, but this one we’ll be referencing when we click on our thumbnails, so we’ll need a name to reference it by.
