So since im still learning about flash and already have a character, I thought why not work on making backgrounds. Not just any background but a background that looks more alive and things are happening all the time. Of course this my first background EVER so...yeah

Im wonder on what you think of it. As usual, tell what i can do to make it better and tips.

Thanks Y'all!

PS:If you watch this use the headset cuz i have some effect on the video.

I've never used, made, or found a moving background before, geez they are so hard to find. Especially water induced backgrounds. I can't really help you, but the water looks nice to me. A little fast though.

As for yours since this is a cave I suggest bats hanging from the ceiling or flying across.

while i think there's a little too much activity going on in the background (it'd draw people's attention away from the actual foregroudn of the animation), it'd be really good to see stuff like this in an animation. It really livens it up and adds a layer of immersion you can't get with just a still picture background. It'd be great to see a larger BG so the characters could actually run around in a scrolling background withh it being alive aroudn them. Nice job

I really like it, especially the music. Just try to imagine more things to add in to there like bats and stuff Alex said and when using animated backgrounds, don't focus your camera on them too much in the animation. Also, I would tone down the sound of that rock rolling down when doing a scene in that map because then it can get really distracting. Nice!

It's just kinda strange that the objects are bluring more and more in the back, but the water layer, furthest in the back, isn't blurred at all.

So it was mainly the water that irked me, blur it, and it may look better if you adjust the color to be darker.
