When you use loadMovie, whatever you load replaces whatever it is loaded into. So you should have an empty movieclip that you can load the swf into rather than loading it into the _root.
I am using a container MC on the stage. I guess my AS is wrong. This is what I've also used and the swf doesn't load. Can you see the error?
If you have a movieclip on the stage that you have assigned the instance name "panoNoMakers" then either of those two lines should load the swf into that movieclip.
Unfortunately the swf isn't loading using those lines. Maybe there is an issue with the MC.
I created an empty MC with the instance name "panoNoMakers" width and height of 1. Does anything need to go inside the MC?
Make sure your code is correct - I notice you have a used the terms 'markers' and 'makers' in your code - is this a typo? Try changing the name of the holder movie clip to something simple like 'holder' to make it easier to check that it has been typed correctly.
Another suggestion is that the loaded swf is running code that is affecting your root timeline, like loading something else into there.
Yes, it is a typo. I changed the instance name to "holder" and the swf still doesn't load. I'd try it both ways-
var swf:MovieClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip("swf", this.getNextHighestDepth());
If it doesn't load the file, do you get any kind of error messages?
First off thanks for the help. I finally figured my issue. I'm using a program called Pano2VR to output my swf and what isn't specified anywhere except buried on one of their forums is that, there Flash 9/10 export only supports AS3 and their Flash 8 export only supports AS2.
I am using AS2 and exporting at 9/10... which doesn't work. I have to convert my entire project to AS3.
Again, thanks for help everyone.
