    Hi

    Hoping someone here can help...

    I am using Flash 5 to create a movie - if i can get it to work it should be
    a number of "movie" clips making up the whole "movie"

    So.........

    1 .. i have created an animation and then saved it as a movie clip
    2 .. i then inserted a new scene and then sited the movie clip in frame 1 on
    the first time line
    3 .. i then inserted a new layer and placed a graphic over the top of the
    "movie-clip" - i.e at frame 1 with a keyframe ending at frame5
    4 .. i then inserted another layer but this time the image was sited at
    frame 6 on the
    third timeline with a closing keyframe at frame 10, this second image is
    slightly different to the image on layer 2 BUT it sits directly in front the
    image on layer 2.

    My expectation was that the movie-clip would play (and loop) and the
    "animation" from layer 2 &3 would also play (and loop)

    HOWEVER, what i get is the movie clip plays then dissappears i.e i get a
    "blank" frame then the animation runs then a blank frame then the movie
    runs again.

    Is it possible to have the movie running continuously in the background with
    the new animation running directly on top of it? ( i.e the animation covers
    part of the movie running in the background)

    Hope all this makes sense :)

    Many thanks

    D
