Yet another tutorial for everyone.  The finished stationery may be viewed by clicking here.  Click here to download a zip file (71kb) with the ssc and graphics used in this tutorial. The sound file was omitted because of it's large size.  As always, please feel free to use your own graphics, however I advise using those provided while you are learning.  As the tutorial progresses and we come to the point where we are discussing the images used for the kaleidoscope, I will attempt to explain how to change your script for your image.  Please note, if I do not include a step then it was not meant to be included, however this should not keep you from trying different things in Scrippy.  There are 18 positioned containers and two positioned scrolls in this tutorial!

1.  Insert a background, red-pat1.jpg.

2.  Insert a positioned container and use the settings as shown below. (Set left and right edges, 15 from the left and 350 from the right.  Set Vertical from the top with a distance of 0 and specified size of 700.)

Example OneExample Two

3.  Insert a postioned container under the first one with settings as below: (Horizontal - set position and width, 20 from the left and size of 50.  Set Vertical Layout - 15 from the top and size of 50.

7.  Insert a frame of 4 pixels, color red and inset.

8.  Insert a background and use the ypat3.jpg.  Set this to scroll up+left and leave it at 10 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move.

9.  Insert another positioned container.  This container should be equal with the second container that you inserted.  Here is a picture to show you.  #4 which is the one you are inserting now, should be even with #2.  The settings are as follows:  Horizontal is 20 from the left, size of 50.  Vertical is 65 from the top with a size of 300.  Thanks to a sharp individual for pointing this omission out!

13.  Insert a frame, color red, 4 pixels and inset.

14.  Insert a background, use the ypat3.jpg and set scroll to up+left, 10 pixels per second and 1 pixel per move.

15.  Now, click on the very first background you inserted and click on insert a positioned container.  This container should be all the way to the left as is #1 above.  The settings for this container are:  Horizontal; 35 from the left and size of 50.  Vertical; 365 from the top and a size of 50.

16.  Insert a frame of 4 pixels, color red and inset.

21.  Insert another positioned container and make sure that this container is also all the way over at the left as before.  If you inserted it and it fell beneath the one above, just grab it with your mouse and move it over to the left.  The settings are:  35 from the right, size 50, 15 from the top and size 50.

Example SixExample Seven

22.  Insert a frame, 4 pixels, color red and inset.

23.  Insert a background, use the red-fleck1.jpg.

24.  Insert another positioned container.  All edges should be set to 10 pixels as was described previously.

25.  Insert a frame, size 4 pixels, color red and inset.

26.  Insert a background and use the ypat3.jpg.  Scroll this up+right and change nothing else.

27.  Now we will insert another left-edged container.  The settings are 35 pixels from the right and size of 50.  65 from the top and size of 300 for the vertical layout.

28.  Insert a frame of 4 pixels, color red and inset.

29.  Insert a background and use the red-fleck1.jpg.

30.  Insert a positioned container and set all edges to 10 pixels.

31.  Insert a frame, 4 pixels, color red and inset.

32.  Insert a background and use the ypat3.jpg.  Scroll it up+right as before.

33.  Insert another positioned container and make sure this one also is located at the left edge.  Horizontal is 35 pixels from the right and size of 50.  Vertical layout is 365 from the top and size of 50.

34.  Insert a frame of 4 pixels, color of red and inset.

35.  Insert a background and use the red-fleck1.jpg.

36.  Insert a positioned container and set all edges to 10.

37.  Insert a frame of 4 pixels, color of red and inset.

38.  Insert a background using the ypat3.jpg.  Scroll it up+right as before.

39.  Insert a positioned container and use these settings:  Horizontal; Center 0, size of 375.  Vertical; Top 40, size of 304.  This container also abuts the left side of the scrippy master.

40.  Insert a frame of 6 pixels, color red and inset.

41.  Insert the red-fleck1.jpg background next.

42.  Insert a positioned container, edges all set at 15.

43.  Insert a frame, color red, size 4 and inset.

44.  Insert a background and use the tanbg4.jpg.  Non-scrolling.

45.  Next insert a positioned container with these settings:  Horizontal; Center -108, same as largest contained image.  Vertical is Center, 0 and same as largest contained image.  This is the container that will hold your kaleidoscope and it goes to the far left edge.  The number of -108 is acquired by dividing the image width by two.

46.  Insert two positioned scrolls.  In the first one choose the hand-right.gif, horizontal, right, 80 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move, fast scroll.  The bottom boxes will use these settings:  Space Between is 432.  This is double the width of your graphic.  Starting position is -216.  This is the width of the graphic. 

Example Eight

Example Nine

The settings for the second scroll are as shown above.   Horizontal, left, 80 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move, fast scroll; space between 432 and -216 for the starting position.

47.  Insert another positioned container which should be even with the last one you did, and insert two more positioned scrolls.  The settings are - horizontal Center and 108, Vertical is Center - 0 and size is set as largest image contained.

Example Ten

Settings for the first positioned scroll is horizontal, left, 80 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move, fast scroll, space between 432 and starting position 216.  The settings for the second positioned scroll are the same except the scrolling direction is set to the right.

******Now we will discuss how to use your own images for this or any other stationery.  The two positioned containers are set half of the width of your image from the middle, one will be a minus and one will be plus which doesn't show, it is just a regular number.  These should both be centered and same as largest contained image chosen.  If your image is 400 pixels wide, the settings would be -200 for the first container's horizontal width from the center and 200 for the second positioned container.  Please take a look at your positioned container for these positioned scrolls and see what I mean so you can understand it.  Now, each positioned scroll is set up like this:  right scroll, left scroll.  The right image goes with the right scroll(#1) and the left image with the left scroll (#2).  Each one has a minus number for the starting position which is equal to the image's width, and the space between is twice the width of your image.  The second two positioned scrolls are opposite, left scroll and then right scroll.  The numbers are positive but the same as for the first two positioned scrolls.    Right image goes to right scroll and left image to the left scroll.  I hope this doesn't confuse anyone but if so please feel free to ask for more clarification.  Basically, when I go to do one of these I open up the ssc for this type and work on a second ssc.  That way I can go back and forth between the windows and set them up.  Yes, I always forget, lol.

48.  Insert a positioned container and make sure it is at the very left of your master scrippy.  This will be for your message area.  Center - Distance of 0, size of 360.  Vertical Layout is 355 pixels from the top and a size of 316.  This message area can be moved to a lower position if your scroll area is higher than the one used here.

Example Eleven

49.  Next, insert a message area.  Set all margins to 10.

50.  Insert a frame of 6 pixels, color red and inset.

51.  Insert a frame of 10 pixels, color black and inset.

52.  Insert a background and use the tanbg4.jpg.  Non-scrolling.

53.  Next you can insert a ticker, sound and a loading message.  For instructions on how to insert a background graphic into your loading message, please refer to the main Scrippy tutorial page.

YOU ARE DONE!
