duplicating a movie clip but wanting the content to be unique
Posted on 2009-04-20
I have a movie clip that has several movie clips inside itself.
This movie clip accesses an XML file and that contains data about pictures and text that the movie clip displays.
I want TWO of these movie clips to play at the same time in my flash movie. I would like to possibly change the data in one of the two clips to read different text and pictures possibly from a SECOND XML file.
The PROBLEM is when I change the code in one of my Movie Clips it changes in the other one (possibly due to the "Instance of").
Is there a QUICK WAY to duplicate a movie clip with data inside and COMPLETELY severe the ties to the copied movie clip?? So I can change the data inside (in this case several movie clips inside the primary one) without it changing the "original master" clip?
As little coding as possible would be great. I just purely would like to right-click the movie clip and duplicate it and actually have a UNIQUE DUPLICATE that doesn't update the original when I make changes.
