    come on guys! cant be that difficult to help!

    i think i am getting mad...
    i am using flash since '98...
    and i am using it very well...
    but it seems that sometimes the brain stops working...

    the problem:
    i just import an external .swf file (pic1.swf) into a
    movie clip (placeholder1) using:
    loadMovie("pic1.swf",_root.placeholder1);

    and it f***ing offsets it...

    why in gods name???????????????????????????????????????

    i am using the same dimensions for the pic1.swf and placeholder1-clip
    ...

    you can download the file at (only 5KB) here

    [start main.swf and click on the red dot...]
    please help!

    Didn't see it...

    ...watch the language...

    ...and... I think you'll find that the offset corresponds to the registration point inside the container.

    Basically, whatever the reference point of the container, that becomes the top-left point of the loaded movie.

    Just make sure that the refernce point of the clip is top left.

    'twas the 'effing' bit - pretty obvious what it was even with the asterisks
