I am just trying to load an external SWF into the background
of my main Flash movie. Basically, I have these clouds in one SWF
that I want to play in the background of my main movie. I have
tried to use the LoadMovie option, but to no success. I am not sure
I am using the TARGET function correctly... can anyone help this
All depends on what you are trying to load that cloud swf
file into. Do you have an empty movie clip somewhere on your main
stage? You can do something like
mcEmptyClip.loadMovie ("name of swf file.swf");
mcEmptyClip would be the empty clip on your main timeline.
Otherwise, you could load the cloud swf into a level (does
anyone load into levels anymore)? I never used levels, but I would
create an empty movie clip and place on the main stage (give it an
instance name), then depending on what else you have going on,
should be able to use the code above.
