    How do I make an endless stream of 1's and 0's from left to right. Starting in a large type and dissapearing as small type at center screen?

    I guess I need to learn to use a loop actionscript or something.

    The Scrolling menu loops, right?
    If you click on the link near the bottom of the page that says "Tutorial"
    it explains how to make a looping movie
    Isn't that what you want?
    Ignore the part about attaching buttons and actions and there is the answer to your question
    The white lines in my footer are made the same way

    resolved

    if i understand your question correctly,then there are two methods of doing it.
    WITHOUT script
    1.make your strip of animation twice the size of your movie.So that it has 2 parts. one visible on your screen and the other out of it.
    2. then animate it as usual.
    3when the second part of the strip enters completely(for example-frame 20), at that frame, add another strip and animate it the same way for the first strip.
    4.when the second part of the 1st strip leaves the screen, the first part of the second strip should be at the position as in frame 20. Then insert a frame script to ask the playhed to go to and play frame 20.
    that should do it.

    WITH script
    Simply use the duplicate movie command and set the second duplicated clip at the position of the original clip at frame 1.
    (your symbol must be a movie clip in this case)

    if you do not understand what i'm trying to say(i'm trying my best), email me and i can send you a swf file to demostrate.
