There is a limit on bitmaps of 2880 pixels. And it is just that: A limit.
The solution is to either make it a smaller image or slice up your big image into multiple parts and reassemble them.
Thanks Rothrock for the reply. So what can I do to slice the big image into multiple parts and reassemble them? Or are there any alternative ways to solve the problem?
You have to use something like Photoshop to slice - so that you end up with
actual different images. You can then load each slice into an empty
movieClip - stick those clips next to each other and you can make as big an
image as you like. We used this method when making a timeline for JLo - the
background image was one seamless image around 12,000 px wide.

The external image is supposed to be changed from time to time by replacing the existing file. So I cant slice it into pieces in advance. Any other ideas?
Thanks for answering.
Your choices are slice it into parts, make the overall resolution smaller, or don't use Flash. Really those are it.
It is so strange that folks never seem to accept this limit. It is that a limit.
