Could someone explain how to make a background move like this...
We are doing a simple stick man similar to the example and drawing a background using a brush.
Give me the for dummies version please.
Ah this is the basic and fundamental usage of Flash and there are many, many ways to do this.
The basic idea is that you can make movieclips or graphics instances and then tween them.
It is a really big topic and there are so many ways to handle this. I think you should look for some basic tutorials on how to tween in Flash.
BTW, by "basic" I don't mean simple or that you should already know how to do it. By basic I mean fundamental and that it is so important to everything you do with Flash that you really need to do some tutorials. I started typing up something, but it got so long and was so lousy that I thought better of it.
Tweening took a giant step forward with Flash CS4, so if that is the version you have I suggest you look for the new kind of tweening and learn how to use that.
If you don't have CS4 I recommend getting it!
Here is a good place to start:
