    new movie opens first at sourcerect

    TomasLewis
      I can't find a way to have a movie open in the same location as the previous movie if the user has dragged the original movie to a new location on the screen - I've tried (amongst other things) recording the activewindow rect , then go to new movie,vis:
      ...on mouseup me
      global gWindowRect
      gWindowRect = _player.activeWindow.rect
      go to movie "newMovie"
      _player.activeWindow.rect = gWindowRect
      ...
      but the new movie always opens at its sourcerect first then flicks to the new location causing a very annoying jump effect. Since I can't write the sourcerect at runtime, how can I avoid this behaviour?
