I have an external swf that loads into my main movie using
loadMovie. The original .swf that is being loaded is larger than

the size of the loaded .swf?

just hard code it.. If you don't you will need to wait until the
external swf has completely loaded and then check its _width and
_height and figure out how much you need to scale it.

loadMovie. It has nice events that tell you when the file is
