is deleting _parent._parent._parent._parent.rackImage
and generally, anything that should be displayed onRollOver shouldn't be loaded: add that image to your library and use attachMovie().
thanks. but with 40+ images i was hoping to use a variable instead creating 40+ new movie clips, etc...
before you get too far with that approach, you should test online. you may find that even a few second delay between your rollover and the image appearing may be unsatisfactory.
basically, then importing jpegs into flash, putting them into movieclips and using attachMovie is quicker and more efficient than loading them into empty movie clips?
it's not necessarily more efficient because i'm not sure what you mean by that. but, it's definitely quicker.
using attachMovie() is almost instant - there will be no perceptible delay between the rollover and the movieclip appearing on-stage. with loadMovie(), there will certainly be a perceptible delay and, almost certainly, that delay will be unacceptible.
