I have loaded an external image into a movieclip (say mcA) using MovieClipLoader.
In AS3, we can use addChild to add a movieclip into another movieclip or sprite, but in AS2, we have to use attachMovie to attach the movieclip from the Library. Since this is an external file on server, I cannot use attachMovie.
I need to add the content of mcA, i.e. the image, to another movieclip (say mcB) so that both mcA and mcB contains the same image.
How can I do this in AS2 without loading again the image from the server?
Thanks in advance!
Here's a link that provides a tutorial file from which you can probably get what you seem to want...
You should also consider just reloading the same image twice since after the first loading, the second and subsequent loadings would most likely be using the cached image.
