Create new MovieClips from external SWF

Hello everyone,

I have a tricky problem, hopefully someone has a solution.

I have a SWF that loads an external local SWF.

What I want to do with that loaded SWF is to get a list of all the objects in it’s library that are selected for exporting for Actionscript.

Then, I want to be able to create new ones of these objects.

Anyone have any idea how I can accomplish this?


I’m not a Flash expert but I’m pretty sure you can’t do anything with a published .swf, you have to have the .flv version.

As of AS3 you can, but it needs a little wrapper in the SWF file to make them accessible.

I’m not on my computer, but when I get back I’ll post some links related to what I’ve turned up.

Doing it is easy, though from what I have found so far it seems like you have to statically set up each clip for it to actually be available, which is what I’m still trying to get around.
