I have a Flash video. Since aspects ratio vary in monitors I need to mask the movie to keep off-stage objects, well, off-stage and out of sight.

This is a stand-alone video--it will not go on the web.

I'm probably missing something in this explanation so please bear with me as I fill in more details as solutions are offered. Thanks for that.

You can create a mask layer as the top layer on your main stage. Set it to be the size of your stage, aligned properly and that should work.

Well, well, that worked. Didn't think I could mask a whole bunch of stuff at once like that. Thanks!
