I'm using ASC 2 to grab XML, load an image as my background by creating an empty movie clip, then trying to run a formula to center the image. I need to be able to grab the images width to run the formula, but it always comes out as 0 on a trace.

Also point out any sloppy methods i did.

*unrelated question: How viable is ASC 2 these days? I'm using it for my site because I simply cant grasp the ASC 3 concepts enough (I am trying to learn it though). I want to be a flash developer and I'm worried this is gonna hurt me.
function BKGD_setup(xmlParse:XML):Void {
	var BKGD_select:Number = 0;
	var BKGD_xml:String = xmlParse.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes[BKGD_select].firstChild.nodeValue;
	createEmptyMovieClip("BKGD",1);
	BKGD.loadMovie(BKGD_xml);
}
