Hey everyone, got an interesting question for you...
Let's say I have 2 .swf files. #2 will be dynamically loading into #1.
Lets say the stage size of #1 is 600x400.
Lets say the stage size of #2 is 800x600.
Is it possible to load a larger .swf file (#2) into a smaller one (#1), and somehow see the whole thing?
As in, not crop the embedded file to the dimensions of the smaller "containing" file??
Thanks in advance
#2 is the bigger swf and #1 is the smaller swf.
Create a movieclip to the size of your #2 swf (800x600) and give it an instance name of thescaled_mc. Now scale thescaled_mc using the 'free transform' tool (Q) . Place thescaled_mc anywhere in #1. Now load your #2 (using loadMovie) in to "thescaled_mc" That should do it.
on your loader mc put this:
} instead of 50 put whatever you want.
Mind that this method works only if you have a rectangle shape in the backgrounf
of the loaded movie so that the container can read the width and height.
