    [F8] LoadMovie problem

    Hey guys and girls,

    I'm using LoadMovie in order to control an image on the side of the site. I've set up a menu bar on the main stage with sub-menus arranged on the main time line. I use gotoAndStop to reach each submenu along the timeline.

    The problem is that as long as I move forward along the timeline (e.g. clicking 'Home' and then 'About') the loaded image stays in place. However, if I move back (e.g. 'About and then 'Home') the image disappears. I've tried to solve it by loading the movie in each frame that brings up a new submenu, but that creates the loading 'flicker' which I rather avoid.

    The scripts I use are followed:

    Frame 1:

    stop();
    loadMovie("images/assets/onetree.png", "target_left");


    Example buttons:
    button 1 (home):

    //jumps to frame "home" which contains a submenu
    on (release) {
    gotoAndStop("home");
    }




    Button 2 (about):

    //jumps to frame "about" which contains a submenu
    on (release) {
    gotoAndStop("about");
    }


    Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.

    Let me know if you need more info

    I think if you have "target_left" on a seperate layer and don't split that layer on the timeline in to keyframes your image should stay.

    Hey mand, thanks for replaying.

    The target is on a different layer and is continuous from frame 1, thats why I can't figure it out.
