I have the following code to create a new BitmapData. How could I convert this bitmap to a new MovieClip or Sprite?

var myMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
myMatrix.tx=55;
myMatrix.ty=55;
var myBitmapData:BitmapData=new BitmapData(400,400,false,0x009966);
var bm:Bitmap=new Bitmap(myBitmapData);
myBitmapData.draw(b_mc, myMatrix);
AddChild(bm);

There's no way to cast a BitmapData object to a Sprite or Movieclip datatype. However, you can add it to the sprite/movie clip's display list (make it a child of it).

To add it to a new Sprite or MovieClip
mySprite = new Sprite();
mySprite.addChild(bm);

But you probably already knew how to do that. :)

For some reason when I add bm to a movieClip of Sprite it does not work. I can just add bm to the main stage by writing:  addChild(bm)    but whenever I try to stuff like  myMovieClip.addChild(bm) there is an error. Is it iposible to add a bitmap to a MovieClip?

What kind of error are you getting? The following code is valid, and shouldn't produce any errors - demonstrating you can add a bitmap object to both a sprite and a movieclip.

var bm1:Bitmap=new Bitmap();
var bm2:Bitmap=new Bitmap();

var sprite:Sprite = new Sprite();
var movieclip:MovieClip = new MovieClip();

sprite.addChild(bm1);
movieclip.addChild(bm2);
