    blendMode not working on the imageholder MC

    ibrubru
      I have a blank mc (instance=picture) servers as image holder to load images from a .xml file.
      The images being pull into the image holder are mostly got white background while my stage is slight green so I'd like to apply the "screen" blendMode so they look blended right. For some reason I can't get it to work...

      been googling on blendMode but no luck getting the right solution. anyone? much appreciated!

          After the clip is loaded most of the property's and all variables are
          initialized. I usually use a loader routine on a second part of the
          picholder.

          +picholder with on enter frame event checking to have the clip loaded
          +-------picture to load the picture into.

          I don't know the property blendMode but you should be able to put this
          on the parent clip where you load your picture in, in my example on the
          picholder clip.

            I think it makes sense that after the clip loaded, then it requires something else to trigger the blendmode property to be reloaded. Can you kindly provide me an sample code to demo me how you use a loader routine on a second part of the picholder.
