    resizable background with constrained foreground

    hey guys

    I'm trying to develop a website that doesnt scale the menu or the information inside it but scales the background behind it to fit your browser size.

    something similar to http://www.cuttingedge.com.au

    notice how the background gradiant can be resized, however everything else maintains its proportions.

    What I'm trying to do is get a background animation that appears on the website that can be resized to the browser size but have a field, or layer, or movie clip (if i have to) that keeps its original proportions.

    So thats a background that changes size with browser resize
    and a foreground that, though it isnt static, maintains original proportions.

    Thanks for your time, any help is greatly appreciated.

    one method would be to set your publish settings to Dimensions=percent and Scale=No scale, then make your background graphic way bigger than thedimensions of your movie

    scaling movie clips in flash and aligning left / right

    Hi Guys,

    I have one further step from this that i need to figure out..

    how do you align movie clips in your flash movie so that they either align right or left right up against the edge of the browser window such as with this example - http://www.sanctuary2007.com/

    if you look at the footer bar at the bottom there is an mp3 player that aligns right and the developers logo that aligns left always.

    also if you also play around with your browser size you will notice that all the flowers etc move independently. they are either aligned left or right but then move independantly when you resize the browser. I know its a lot to ask but someone out there must have an idea?

    cheers!

    Could you post how you did it, I need this code too (and so anyone else who comes here in the future can find it)?
