Flash AS2 stage size

Posted on 2009-05-02

I have run into a problem I can get my head around with a flash movie I am producing. What I have is a movie (base) that is 700 x 700 that loads a SWF movie 1800 x 700 into an empty mivieclip. What I am trying to do is use the (base) main site to hold the loaded site centrally into the movie. The problem I am having is that when I load the detail movie into the base movie, it is cropped by the base movie and I need the detail movie to bleed out of the base movie the the width of the browser.
Is this possible, and if so any ideas how I do it? I am using AS2

    If your main composition is smaller then your movie, you'll have to make some kind of pop up display. It's not possible to change the width of your composition in flash.

    Ok, the main movie is smaller than the movie being loaded into it. The problem is that the movie being loaded into the main movie needs to be on a layer under another layer to create the effect I am looking for. In theory I can add the loaded content into the main movie. Then what I don't know how to do is have the movie play on an HTML page at a size of 700 x700 and the wifer content in that movie to break out of the 700x700to bleed full browser width. Is that possible?

    If you have 2 flash files: one small, one big. And you want the small one to transform to big, that's not possible. What you can do though, is use javascript, or to have onclick event that will fire another instance of flash player. So they will be on top of each other.
