Rotate a MovieClip on diferent points.

I know that if I go into the time line of a movie clip and move that object then when I rotate that object using actionScript it will rotate about that point. How could I rotate a MovieClip from different points. For example how could I make a movie clip rotate about its center and latter rotate the same movie clip about the top?

what you are wanting to do is to move the registration point of the movieclip, but that is not possible from what I have learned...

instead though, put your movieclip into a shell or holder movieclip, and then move your movielp inside of the shell on the X and Y axis to a new position and then rotate the shell clip.
