to create an inversed mask of the shape I have drawn (lineTo)
inside a movieClip..
my clip layout/nesting is as follows:
parent.parent clip (contentContainer)
---parent clip (faceContainer)--
-----lineContainer (holds the shape/object Im using for my
source of the inverse mask
-----maskContainer (empty clip to hold the dynamically
created clip from the inverse mask method above)
-----imageContainer (the place where the dynamically loaded
image gets loaded into, and is 'masked' by the inversedMask method)
now this all works fine.. except I want to add a mask to the
parent clip thats holding these 3 nested clips...(faceContainer)..
or even to the parent clip of that (contentContainer)..
but when I do so.. and then invoke the inversedMask() method
from above,...the whole imageContainer goes blank...
now since the only REAL masking is the maskContainer, masking
the imageContainer.. why cant I add a mask manualy or through AS to
the faceContainer or the contentContainer clips?
