    how do you exclude background from blend modes?

      I'm going to get right down to it. here are the files for the project:

      (first check out index.hml)

      I've been racking my brain and have googled and asked around on forums for hours and hours with no avail.

      I'm using cs4, and need to know how to make the gradient overlay not blend with the background of the movie. it does not *seem* mask-able because the images are loaded externally and I'll be adding images to the folder which will automatically show up in the swf. these images will have different sizes and they move. the colors of the images change when they move under the gradient so I can't do individual objectcontainer gradients (I don't think). the background is transparent, but the gradient overlay is blending to the page background.

      If anyone can help me out I would be overjoyed! I hope I've explained this all well, and let me know if you need any additional info.

      thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you in advance!

      here is a screenshot as well:
