Rotate a Movie Clip continually Using Only AS3

Hi Guys,

I have been searching around and tried various options to achieve rotation of a movie clip.

I have a simple circular loading graphic, I need to add it to the stage and then start rotating it. The only other requirement is to be able to fade out and remove it from the stage, which i can deal with. I just need to get it rotating.

I am using Tweener as my tween engine.

You don't really need the Tweener just to rotate a movieClip unless you are using is other places many times...

Here is a quick example on attaching a library item and have it rotated constantly...
