    It's called the "registration point". And Actionscript always does it's rotation and scaling relative to that point.

    If you need the loaded image to rotate around it's own center you need to use a setup of two movieclips. You'll need one movieclip that you will use to rotate the image. Inside this movieclip you should put another movieclip. And into that movieclip you load your picture. Then when the picture is loaded you center the image movieclip inside the one you wan't to rotate.

    - I hope I made some sense

    hey!

    thanks for the knowhow, but it still doesn't work!
    i've outlined in to the center of the registrationpoint, but it keeps aligning itself on the top-right-side of the mc.

    what's going on??!! whaha

    this is the zip with everything in it. (fla, txt-file and pic) so you can see what's happening.. hope it helps you out by helping me solve this problem
