    The finer points of a full screen movie...'off stage' graphics

    Here is a simple question, maybe someone could shed some light.

    I have played around with the settings when exporting and embeding a movie in a webpage, and try as I might I have not been able to solve this one...

    I can see stuff off the stage (which I want visible) when I let set the movie to 'scale' to the bowser window as a percentage, and set it to 'show all', but if I fix the size, it crops the off stage graphic elements. I would like to fix the size of the movie, BUT ALSO allow the display of off stage graphics. I have played around with the settings in various combinations, but don't seem able to sort this. It's fine in just the Flash player, but in a web page it crops the content to the stage area... any ideas... am I missing something very obvious here?

    It's actually my home page at http://www.jonnya.net

    There are graphics that go off the edge of the stage that are cropped... I would like these to show, but maintain the exact size of the movie. Any solutions??

    You could try using a couple of fs commands to force your movie to full screen but dont allow the movie to scale

    Code:
    fscommand ("fullscreen", "true");
    fscommand ("allowscale", "false");
    this way you have more control over which of your graphics are cropped and non cropped.

    Humph, yea, would seem the obvious choice, but I'm pretty sure I tried that (and a couple of other things), and couldn't get the movie at exact size (not scaled), with stuff off stage still showing when it's in a html document. In just the Flash player, rather than embeded in a webpage it works perfectly and you can exploit the full screen command too...nice!

    Maybe It was another 5am session when I was playing around with it, and I'm just being a real newbie

    Hey Chas, I didn't take your comment as patronising at all, sometimes it's the most obvious, easy solutions that you miss!! Thanks for looking into this for me, bit busy myself at the moment, but when I get a chance I will play around with this too. If I find a solution, I'll post it up here!! Thanks for your time on this one, I know it's only a little thing, but that's what is anoying me!!
