    stupid masks

    Hi,

    Why doesn't this mask work?

    I am trying to mask my image using the animation. I want the animation to mask the image. It doesn't seem to work for some reason?


    Thanks.

    I think the cause of this is because of the masked symbols inside symbols, so it's not displaying in flash. It should work as an SWF though. Export or test you movie. It works for me if I do that.

    hey,

    I exported my file as .swf. But it didn't work.

    Can you attach your .swf file?

    thanks.

    Here you go. (I take it it's meant to look like the image is disappearing because black squares are enlarging and covering it up)

    Hey,

    Thanks. Lol! That's the exact same .swf as mine

    That's not what I'm trying to do. I want to use the animated squares to reveal the picture underneath.

    I don't want the black squares to cover up the picture. I want to black squares to mask the image.

    lol.

    I took away the masking bit in the enlarging square symbol, you didn't need that. I think it works now. Have a look:

    Good photos. I love the close ups, the ice is amazing. Very sharp. What camera do you use?

    Hey,

    Thanks. I have a olympus camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom. It zooms to like 30X optical and digital. It's 3.2 megapixels. It's pretty nice. It zooms sooo far!
