Hey, I hope you come back to help me out with this... because This is exactly what I'm trying to do.
First of all, I see the Bounding Box in the compenent Skins folder of my Library. however, I dont clearly understand how To set it, to transparent.
I tried "_root.FBoundingBox._alpha=0" .... that didnt quite work out.
I'm wondering if i'm missing something... in fact, I'm SURE that I am.
I kinda figured it out on my own... Here's what I did.
I was looking through the folders in my Library, I clicked on "boundingBox" in the Core Assets - Developers Only folder. I double clicked on "boundingBox" and in the actionscript panel, i typed "this._alpha=0"
When I tested my movie, the White bg was now Gone.
Hope that helps other people looking for a way to do this out. Also if anyone knows of an easier way to do it, Please let me and others know.
