is it possible to load a movie to a level lower than the main movie so that the main movie would be above the loaded movie? I am using loadMovieNum because if i use the loadMovie all the references from the loaded movie to _root are wrong.

1) create a movie clip (name it mcBackground) on the stage, with nothing in it, right click it and send it to back
2) mcBackground.createEmptyMovieClip("bgmovie");
mcBackground.bgMovie.loadMovieNum(....)

Im not sure, i tryed that and it did not work. Im not sure what i am doing wrong. I created a movie clip called mcBackground and put the code

mcBackground.createEmptyMovieClip("bgMovie");
mcBackground.bgMovie.loadMovieNum("org.swf,2)

inside frame one of the mcBackground movie clip, and nothing happens.

I tryed a bunch off differnt things to try and make it work with no luck.
I created the bgMovie inside the mcBackground and the put loadMovieNum("movie2.swf",3) in the first frame of the bgMovie. It loads the movie2.swf but it is still above the rest of the movie. Would it help if you could see the fla?
