How Do I Mask External SWF-File?
on Oct 17, 2008 at 3:22:57 pm

Hi there ...

... I want to mask everything off what's not on the stage. No problem for movieclips that I have put on a layer. But what do I do concerning an external swf-file?

This swf-file is brought into my project via URLRequest and stage.addChild. It works well. But how can I manage to masking it?

Regards from good old Germany.

Similar problem here.

The difference is that I created the external file myself, so I figured I could put a mask within the external swf file. If i run the external file by itself, the mask works great! But if I load it externally from my main swf, everything runs correctly except the mask. anyone else experiencing this problem?

Help is much appreciated!
