I'm in a situation where I could use a bit of help.

To get right to it, I have a movieclip that I need duplicated x number of times. This movie clip is under a mask, but when I duplicate and position the duplicated clips as necessary, the mask doesn't apply to the duplicated clips.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the depth of the duplicates, but I'm not exactly sure... nor am I sure how to fix it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
