Loaded clip constraints

I have some code that loads a movie to a certain area on my stage. Unfortunately though, the movie is un contained.

By that, I mean that things that are supposed to be off stage (invisible) are visible. Is there a way to foce the loaded clip to only show what is on the stage of the loaded clip?

As it stands right now, the clip i have is 250px by 20px
i have text swinging in from the right and exiting left. instead of seeing the textonly on the stage area of the MC i can see it to the right of the mc stage area (over my parent stage) and when it leaves, it just continues to move off the mc stage and over my parent stage.

PLEASE! anyone HELP, (i have no more fingernails because of this!!!) Thanks :slight_smile:
