If you are not displaying this in a web page, then what you might need to do then is either mask the entire contents of the stage or create a black frame that surrounds the stage and is sufficiently large enough for any screen resolution.
That seems like a kind of sloppy solution, but for what I need to do, it worked. Thanks
It was like slapping a poster sized photo mat over a baseball card, lol.
You're welcome. The mask is a less area intensive (no larger than the stage), but can occasionally be a little time consuming to get everything into a movieclip that you can mask... though there's always the option of loading your swf into another that has the mask for the loaded file.
