    Unusual stage problem [Flash 8]

      Here is the link so you can see the problem:
      http://www.glimedia.com/FlashExamples/timeline.html

      This movie is 1000px x 500px, and I dynamically link 11 movie clips (each 1000px x 300px) in a row using the following script:

      var imagesNumber:Number = 11;
      for (i=1; i<=imagesNumber; i++) {
      myTimeline.attachMovie("t"+i,"t"+i,i);
      Load_mc= myTimeline["t"+i];
      Load_mc._x = (i-1)*1000;
      }

      The mc "myTimeline" is an empty container for the loaded movie clips. As you can see, the first 4 loaded movie clips grey out the film strip at the top. Once you reach the 5th one, they show up great. I am guessing this is a stage width issue, because if I reduce the variable ImagesNumber to 8, they all show up perfectly. However this won't work for me, I need all 11 and eventually a 12th. The wierd part is that the text below it shows up just fine, and it's part of the same movie clips. The greyed out area is a film strip that dynamically loads a bunch of external jpegs.

      Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? If this helps, I originally created this file at 1000px x 700px, and it did not have this problem.

      Thank you in advance for your help. I have posted the FLA here: http://www.glimedia.com/FlashExamples/Timeline.zip
