I've got a script which applies to a clip, myClip. I need to
load movies or image files into that clip. What loads needs to be
at a higher level than everything else, let's say level 100. The
loading swf's contain a single image whose registration point is
center. The target clip, myClip, is centered on the stage. But when
the swf loads, it loads on the upper left of itself on the position
The easiest way is to change the "0" registration point in
the movieClip that you are loading everything into.
To do this, get inside the mov loader by double clicking it.
Then once inside, select all and then press "Ctrl + i" to bring up
your info pallet. Select all "Ctrl + a" and you will notice that
there are now dimensions in the info pallet. The figures you are
intersted in are on the right (X:Y:). Also you will notice a grid
like graphic in between the 2 sets of numbers. There are 2
reference points on this grid that you can click on. One is to the
top left and one is in hte centre. Make sure you have click on the
centre one. (This should appear like a small square black dot) And
the top left should now be a white box.
Once you have done this the figures in the X:Y: should have
changed to more than 0 in each.
You need to change both of these to 0
as you do this you will see your movieClip change postion.
This is supposed to happen as you are changing the ref point for
Now come out of the Mov Clip and repostion it again from the
main time line.
Now, i you have done it correctly, Eveything that was loading
to the top left will now load centre.
This is the manual way of doing in but the other way is by
using actionscipt with a movie handler.
