    [F8] DuplicateMovieClip while createEmptyMovieClip?


    i am creating an empty MC with the following code..

    this.createEmptyMovieClip("main_mc",getNextHighest Depth());
    main_mc.createEmptyMovieClip("layout_mc",getNextHi ghestDepth());
    main_mc.layout_mc._x = 200;
    main_mc.layout_mc._y = 200;

    Then i would like to duplicate the beam.swf file with a duplicatiemovie script..

    wich is this one..

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    // initialize variable at 0
    i = 0;
    do {
    // make copies of the movie clip
    duplicateMovieClip (_root.main_mc.layout_mc, "layout_mc" + i, i);

    // rotate the copies i degrees
    setProperty (eval("_root.main_mc.layout_mc" + i), _rotation, i);
    // increment the counter by 15
    i = i+15;
    // check the condition
    } while (i<1439);
    // make the original movie clip invisible
    main_mc.layout_mc._visible = 0;

    The both scripts work seperate.
    But mixing them doesn't seem to work.
    Does anyone know how to combine these two scripts?

    Or does duplicateMovieClip just duplicate the empty clip, without its contents?
