Load external mc so that current mc shows through mask of new mc

Hey guys,

How can I load an external swf on top of a previously loaded swf (using a container_mc clip) without “clearing” the first swf in the process?

All of my external swf have masking effects, and I’d like the previously loaded movie to show through the mask of the newly loaded movie.

So far, my only solution has been to use separate containers stacked on top of each other, and load the new movies into the top containers, but I’m thinking there’s an easier way.

Here’s my work so far…
