    Loading External Clips: Why is a new "instance" clip created?

    jfred1979
      When I load an external movie clip using loadMovie, or the MovieClipLoader class, there is always a subclip named "instance" followed by an instance number attached to whatever clip I am loading the external swf into. For instance, I have a clip on the stage called "container". I load an external clip like this:

      container.loadMovie("clip.swf");

      "clip.swf" ends up in container.instance01, rather than container. Is there a way to load a clip into container, the same way using attachMovie with a local library clip would?
