Chapter 24. MOVIES IN A WINDOW AND ALTERNATIVES > CREATING SELF-CONTAINED MIAWS

CREATING SELF-CONTAINED MIAWS

You don't actually need another movie file to create a MIAW. You can simply open a MIAW using the same file that the Stage is using.

To do this, use the movie instead of another filename when assigning the filename property of the MIAW. The idea is to hide the frame you want the MIAW to use in a frame near the end of the movie. Then, you can use tell to tell the MIAW to go to that frame before you make it visible. You can even resize the rect of the MIAW to make it fit a smaller size.
