C> Hi Tony,

C> I suppose you mean electrogram? If that's so, I just got done making one. :)
C> Lots of headaches since it was my first flash attempt! LOL

C> Okay, well, this is what I did.

C> I imported an electrogram into flash. Made a new layer and started tracing the
C> whole thing so that it'll be a vector graphic. I made that into a symbol and
C> deleted the original electrogram since I didn't need it anymore.

C> Then on a new layer I drew a rectangle to cover the electrogram. Hit F6 to
C> insert a new keyframe and then Shift + right arrow key to move this layer.
C> Repeat until end of electrogram.

C> Then I converted this to a movie clip since I wanted to move all the time.

C> Perhaps, I did it the hard way, but flash is new to me. Hope this helps.

C> Cinn.

C> P.S. I must be forgetting my english since it takes me forever to right an
C> email! :))
