Layers driving me up the wall
I have a movie that uses as its background a movie clip into which is loaded a swf file. I'm using Flash MX 2004.
This background movie clip is sat on its own layer, which appears as the last layer in the list in the layers tab.
Everything works ok apart from a movieclip on a higher layer, which is hidden behind this background. I've moved this movieclip to other layers, but no matter where I place it, it still appears at the back. I've also tried right clicking on the clip and doing 'bring to front', as well as right clicking on the background and doing 'send to back'.
Furthermore, I've done a load of messing about with the 'swapDepths()' function, because both movieClips are populated with images at runtime (the one that disappears has a jpg loaded into it, the one that's always on top has the swf). Clip1, the swf, has a depth of -16383, Clip2, the jpg, has a depth of -16381. When I do Clip2.swapDepths("Clip1"), nothing happens.
Could someone help me with why this is happening, because as far as I can see there is no logical reason for this (AARRRGGGHHH!)
