duplicate only work for current level.
Do you mean same _level or same MC? I don't want to change levels, just have the copy of mc1.mc2 not in mc1, but on _root (same level as mc1).
It seems it's not doable, or is it?
same level as in, if orginal is in _root, then your copy will be in _root.
if original is in my_mc, the copy will be in my_mc
Some rumors I've heard have reparenting as coming in with the next version of actionscript. But in general no you can't do it now.
If the clip is an authortime clip you can export it for actionscript and then attach it where you want.
If it is dynamic you can use the bitmap class as you have posted.
shyaway – I think I would call that "same timeline." Since there are _levels and they already get confused by many as layers and/or depths it would be better to stay away from "level" unless that is really what you mean.
Thanks guys (or girls), I was afraid that it's not possible. Hope it is in the next Flash version, would be quite useful.
That 'level' thing is really a bit confusing, but it's also my fault, I used it in the first post, meaning timeline. Anyway, it's clear now.
