I'm sure I'm just not thinking about this right but rather than scrathc my head for hours, hopefully someone can tell me where I'g going wrong.

I'm trying to produce a sort of gallery. I want to be able to duplicate a thumbnail as many times as I require. I then want to use a mask so that the thumbnails slowly appear.

So the problem I have is duplicating a movie clip so that the duplicate lies on the layer which is being masked. I have a movieclip in the masked layer on to which I want to put the duplicated thumbnails. In other words, how do I stop my duplicate movie clip from appearing in _root?

:confused:

As far as I understand, you do need to mask them again after you do the duplicateMovieClip() so that they won't be visible...
