Whats the best way to destroy a movie clip?
Right now i just do (AS3):
but the object still exists in memory even though it is not executing script.
Is there any way to completely get rid of it?
there are quite a few things that could prevent that movieclip from being gc'd. but if you're lucky and you have a reference to that movieclip from a parent timeline, you can null that reference and your movieclip will be gc'd.
I don't understand what gc'd means exactly.
GC = Garbage collector
