Alpha Mask in external SWF

Hi guys,
wondering if anyone could help with this problem i’m having…

basically i have a swf (logomovie1.swf)that uses bitmap caching for an alpha fade, it works fine as it is using…
maskMC.cacheAsBitmap = true;
maskee.cacheAsBitmap = true;

in a seperate movie (holder.fla) i’m tryin to load logomovie1.swf into an empty movie clip with


the load works fine and i can see the movie but the alpha fade no longer works… you can see the mask running across the screen instead of being able to see through it…

any ideas?

i’ve tried to target the bitmap again in the holder movie by using

_level0.holder.maskMC.cacheAsBitmap = true;
_level0.holder.maskee.cacheAsBitmap = true;

and i’ve tried

this.holder.maskMC.cacheAsBitmap = true;
this.holder.maskee.cacheAsBitmap = true;

but no luck, can still see the mask on screen…

any one got any ideas?? any help wud b much appreciated!

cheers thanks a million
