    Gang,

    Here's what I need:

    I created an animated rocket ship image, for which I wanted to look like it was traveling through space.

    The animation itself has nice movement, but it needs to be placed on a background of stars that moves laterally behind it.

    I exhausted a number of possibilities with a Java Applet of a dynamic star field, only to find out that applets always occupy the top layer, obscuring everything else in their wake.

    The only thing left for me to do is either learn Flash . . .

    . . . or animate a space background I already have.

    Is there any way, through Java Scripting (or otherwise), to move a page background image horizontally, in a continually repeating motion?

    If I could accomplish that, I could place my animated space ship on top of the background; & all would be well.

    Thanks for any help,

    mark4man

    Have you tried using the space background to create an animated gif ? Or why not just use the space background in the rocket gif and have it animated that way ?

    skrlin,

    Will maybe go that way . . . maybe all the way to a Flash movie as a splash page.

    Thanks,

    Sure thing. Sometimes its easier to do things graphically then programmitcally. You get less gray hairs that way
