    Hi
    My problem is this: is there a way of duplicating a movie clip within a movie clip into another clip. Huh? What I'm saying is say you have two clips on the stage: clip1 and clip2. Clip1 contains a MC called clip3. Is there a way of duplicating clip3 into clip2.
    thanx

    Unfortuneatley not in flash 4, the duplicated movieclip always recides on the timeline from which the movielcip that you want to duplicate is based.

    ie. if clip1 is on the main timeline and from inside clip2 you use:

    Duplicate Movie Clip ("/clip1", "clip3", 1)

    the new movie called "clip3" will be found on the main timeline.

    ie2.if clip1 is inside clip2 and from the main timeline you use:

    Duplicate Movie Clip ("/clip2/clip1", "clip3", 1)

    the new movie called "clip3" will be found on inside clip2.

    Hope that helps!!
    Regards FlashGuru
