I am using the 2021 Animate and working on a HTML 5 canvas. My background is a movie clip symbol where I have an ocean scene using a mask to animate the water. It is larger than pixel size of my file. It covers the entire background.

But when I test it, it is so very small and in the top left corner. I don't know why. 

This is how it looks in Animate.

And this is how it looks when I test it.

is the first image the animate stage? if so, scale the bitmap so its stage size or edit it (eg, in  ps) so it's stage size.

Thanks. The pivot point is already in the movie clip's center. So it is not that. It shrinks the ocean movieclip for some reason.

Thanks, kglad! Yes, the first image is the Animate stage.  That worked. I resized the ocean image in Photoshop to size of stage in Animate. Then imported into Animate and replaced the old ocean image.

 

I guess Animate doesn't like to resize images. I appreciate the help!
