I've been editing some of the ActionScript in the original Flash file for this photo gallery - http://www.no3dfx.com/polaroid/

One thing I'm having difficulty with, is trying to create an 'exclusion zone' 60px high at the bottom of the stage, so that when the polaroids are initially scattered, this horizontal strip is kept clear.

Thanks for your reply. I tried the change to line 21 but didn't seem to have any effect.

This made me look again at the AS and found adding '-60' after Stage.height on lines 86, 93 & 97 resulted in what I was after. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
