The main movie is 750px x 400px with a movie clip named
holder_mc. This mc is placed in the center of the main movie and
measures 250px x 150px. The secondary movie is 250px x 150px. This
second movie contains graphics that are larger than 250px x 150px
that have been converted to movie clips. I use motion tweens to
scroll these images from top to bottom and side to side and they
work fine. The problem comes when I load this secondary movie into
the holder_mc of the main movie using loadMovie and then play it.
The images play outside the boundaries of the movie clip. So
instead of an image looking like it is scrolling, the whole image
is displayed at one time and moves up & down and side to side.
I have masked the images and then the movie displays the way I
intended it to. The thing is I don't want to have to use masks all
the time. This didn't start happening until I downloaded flash
player 9. If it happens on my computer will happen on other
computers? How can I fix this problem?
I am using Flash MX 2004 professional on a windows xp
Can anyone tell me what is happening here and how I can fix
unfortunately, I finally figured it out... I DO Have to use
masks. but I learned I can use the same mask over and over. I've
learned quite a bit since I originally posted this message. thanks
again for these forums. Mark
