So I'm submitting SWF files to a client. They are playing
these SWF thru their internet browser. That's just how they do it,
I have no control. So... they see the stuff outside of the document
boundaires. So if my doc was 981x300 and they view it, they'll see
the junk outside the boundaries of 981x300. The final file is being
placed in a webpage so that isn't the problem, and hiding the stuff
outside is not important for that function. So what I've been doing
is putting a white matte around everything on the top layer, pain
in the butt.... is there another solution?
just keep them off the stage until you need them. you won't
need to actually hide them because the user won't see them if they
are off of the stage.
if you're doing that and you still see them in the html page,
check the settings so that they aren't 100% width or height. Make
the flash object h and w the same as your movie. Then those object
will be hidden
