Resize the ScrollPane by either entering the numeric values in the Properties Inspector for both the Height and Width or simply click Q (Free Transform Tool) and click and drag the ScrollPane to resize it.

You can see my custom settings in the image above. My Movie Clip is 60 pixels high (the size of my thumbnails) so I added an additional 28 pixels to that for the ScrollPane's height.

I matched the width of my ScrollPane to the width of my movie: 300 pixels. Go ahead and preview your movie by clicking F12.

Final Notes:

You may find yourself needing to tweak your movie clip a bit. For example, if you notice in my source .fla, I placed a black shape on a layer below my thumbnails. This is because by default the ScrollPane has a white background.

I also extended the black shape a little past each end of the the thumbnails to better position the thumbnail movie once it's loaded into the ScrollPane.

If I had kept the black shape flush left with the first thumbnail, the thumbnail movie would be loaded with the first thumbnail flush against the ScrollPane. I just prefer there to be a bit of a margin on either side of the thumbnails.
