Hi Susana,

Here's my take on the Masking Set-up.

At least three layers are involved.
1) The top layer is the Mask Definition Layer (arrow pointing down).
2) The Middle Layer replaces and covers the image on the lower layers
with the image on this layer (Mask Image Layer - shown as arrow pointing
down and right), only in the area defined by the Mask Definition Layer
directly above it.
3) Lower Levels are displayed when there is no Mask area defined above.

The names I use above are mine and MM documentation may call them
something else when it is available.

In the layer features pulldown you need to selecr Mask for the Mask
definition area.

To view in the editor select Show Masking in the Mask Definition layer,
to see how the Masking will appear. If the Mask Image Layer is locked it
should be unlocked before applying Show Masking.
The Mask and Mask Image layers will display as locked. Note, locking the
layers the two layers does not neccessarily create the correct masking
display, so use Show Masking.
Also, note when exporting the swf file it is irrelavent whether Show
Masking is selected or not, as this is only for viewing in the editor.
