thanks, but I tried that. There's about 40 layers, and some just will not mask.
Is this typical for online publishers to demand the below? :
I thought you just publish the .fla and then it becomes usable and cropped in the HTML form
I'm waiting for these guys to get back to me, but they;re being awfully slow.
i've never created ads so i can't say anything about what's typical or not typical.
but, the request is pretty reasonable: anybody that moves from novice flash user to intermediate learns to NOT put items on the backstage.
items on the backstage are a major problem IF you ever load that swf into another swf.
anyway, create a layer folder and move all 40 layers into that folder. then mask the folder.
