    setMask() INSIDE a movie clip

    Gladiatorus

      Hello:

      I'm working on an AS2 website that uses some alpha gradient masks in its  header's looping animation. If I put this animation on the main  timeline my masks work perfectly [setMask()], but, because the header  needs to be a movieclip, my masks don't work at all.

       

      It doesn't matter whether I tick the cacheAsBitmap property in the properties panel  or I set it to true with AS for both the mask and masked mc's. I even  tried with both, ticking and AS at the same time, but as long as my  masks are inside the header mc, they're not working.                                                                                                       

      Is there a solution for this?

      Thanks.
