    Masks with actionscript

    dhanson1971
      Created a custom shape on my stage and it is a mask - want through actionscript to load images from my library or movieclips from my library into the mask on my stage - when I use the code, it switches out my mask on the state and replaces it with my images or movieclips from the library, instead of masking them inside of the shape. Any advice?

          How are you doing this masking? Is it a timeline mask or dynamic mask (using ActionScript, specifically the setMask method)? Timeline mask may also use ActionScript to render the effects. If it is a dynamic mask, are you sure that you are masking the correct mc? If you need more help search the helpdocs (F1) for 'setMask'. If that doesn’t help post some code.
