Keep childnode still while dragging parent
Usually a movieclip within a movieclip inherits the properties of the parent clip. Thus when dragged it will move with the parent. This script shows how the child will stand still when the parent is moved. All what it is is a bit of calculation meaning when the x and y values for the parent change the x and y values for the child change too but in the opposite direction.
Illusion of continous movement
This tutorial makes use of the above tutorial to keep the child movieclip silent while dragging and moving the parentclip. By creating a simple actionscript mask you can achieve the illusion that an object moves continously.
