    Use Image Sequence (or similar) as mask?

    Hey all,
    I've got a black and white image sequence... I'm wondering if there is a way to use it as a mask in flash? I'm not having much luck, so maybe it's not doable. Any ideas? thanks!

    When you say "image sequence" what do you mean by that?

    Try attaching them to a movieclip and then use the movieclip as a mask using setMask.
