I believe the best answer to this is that the background image should
overlap the stage boundaries, and then use the inspector to align
overlapping/on top things by the numbers. You would have your base image
origination set to -1,-1, and have it bigger than the entire stage in at
least one dimension. If you play with the base image in Photoshop, and
arrange your cutouts over the base in layers (in Photoshop), you can see
their coords. Use these coords for aligning things in Flash. Or just do it
by eye (not as reliable) in Flash, as long as the base overlaps the stage.
It's a weird Flash bug. Anyway - that works for me. It's really depressing
to see that happen until you come up with this hack fix. It's kind of lame
on the part of Macromedia to leave us with this one.

Subject: FLASH: Bitmaps Jump


I'm doing a project in Flash repurposing material done in Awfulware. Some of
the graphics we can happily and easily redo in Flash. Other content is best
kept as bitmap.

So, I have a background BMP and use a MC to display various other bitmapped
content that has to be perfectly aligned. Using Edit in Place, I can align
it perfectly at 2000%, yet it jumps at 100%. I've tried smoothing on and
off, aligning each image with and without decimals for X or Y, and making
the BMPs symbols or not. Still no luck. The output in the SWF is PNG.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Best regards,

Pete
