in flash the dimentions are (0,0)-(x,y) which poses a problem for a small minded fool like me, because obviously x and y are positive numbers which means the y value of the graph increases as it goes down... is there any way i can fix this so that i dont have to think about it :p

What you do is calculate all of your math using the cartesian coordinate system, then when you actually assign the values do whatever your doing, just make the y value be:

_y = myMovieHeight-myCartesianY;

so that the Y value is changed appropriately.

sorry, that was a bit of a joke. it will technically work, but EVERYTHING will be reversed on the y-axis. text, graphics, jpgs, you name it.
