In normal action script based swf files a movie clip that has disapeared from the stage and then reapeared it was reset to frame 1. Why in html canvas when movie clip reapears it just continues animating as if it was saved while disapearing? Is there a way to get rid of it and make it act like in swfs? Workaround would be to code its appearance with something that will rewind it to frame 1, any other ideas to make it reset while reapearing without need of adding that code? In some cases that would be very inconvenient and waste of precious time.
What you say is true, and the only solution I've found is to use code to reset things.
The weird thing is that on some movie clips it DOES reset. Cant tell why yet
Maybe it have something to do about movieclip being on the main stage or in another movie clip. The one on the stage does reset when reapearing - the one in other movie clip doesnt. Cant test right now cause im on the clock, but maybe thats the problem. Hope they will fix this inconsistency tho.
