Flash player ActiveX

I use Flash Player ActiveX and VC++

Anyone know is it possible to play flash "off screen" ? Like in a "screen buffer" ...

Because then, I want to "record" that flash to make an avi file.

Currently, I can display it "on screen" and then record it successfully. But, because of this (on screen), if I put "a window" on top of the play area, it will be recorded also.

Hope you guys understand what I meant.

Please, if you know trick to do this.

Because I want to do it from my application (that I wrote using VC++ and Flash Player ActiveX), not via Flash MX IDE.

Yeah, that's basically what I need. The flash movie is not interactive (so, no clicking or anything), just flash animation.

Currently it's done perfectly, but not off screen, so anything on top of the recording window will also be recorded :(
