    Duplicate Movieclip Function

    janet.gold

      Hi all,

       

      I'm working on a creating a button that will create (preferably unlimited) duplicates of one movie clip. I have something that works for Flash, pre-2004, but I'd like to update it to Actionscript 2.

       

      Any suggestions? (Movieclip's instance name is "Cat").

       

      Button:

      on (press) {

      i = i + 1;

      duplicateMovieClip (_root.cat, "cat" + i, i);

      }

      Actionscript on the Movieclip object:

      onClipEvent (load) {

         scale = (random(10) + 50)

       

         this._x = random(400);

         this._y = random(400);

         this._alpha = random(100);

         this._xscale = scale;

         this._yscale = scale;

      }
