hitTest on duplicated movie clips?

i have two separate movie clips, both of which will be duplicated for continuous movement, and i want to do something when they intercept each other.

i know how to do a hitTest on 2 regular movie clips… but how do you reference duplicated movie clips for the hitTest?

anyone? please?

same way. Just use their right names

i don’t want to have to use “instance1”, “instance2”, “instance3” and so on and so forth. i want one hitTest on one of the original movie clips that detects collision with any and all duplicated movie clips.
