IS the mask a single entity or is it an assembly of different objects?
The mask itself is just a single shape— a rectangle. The masked object is a GIF that was made into a movie clip symbol. I also tried the GIF as a graphic symbol. Both times it disappears when I publish to a swf.
I also tried resaving the GIF as a PNG and replacing it, but no luck.
Do you load the image in the movieclip dynamically at runtime? Also the images you use resides in a server? If yes, then due to security reasons it might not get loaded if approiate cross domain xml is not present in the server.
The image is not being loaded dynamically. It is in the timeline. It resides on the same local server as the Flash file and the SWF file. It makes no sense... I always build SWF files in this manner. This is the first time this has happened.
Thank you for your help.
