Masking & duplicated movies

I have a mask over an empty movieclip. The empty movieclip gets copied i times (and the depth of the new clips is set to i ) and a different .jpg gets loaded into the clip.

Okay, now the obvious conclusion / question: how comes that the mask only works for the original movieclip and not for the duplicates, and how can I fix this problem ?

Again, I will be grateful for your reactions
cheers !

Well, 1 mask for 1 movie clip. As simple as that. :slight_smile:

So I guess if I put the whole thing into another single movieclip, to which I apply the mask, all the clips (in the MC) should be masked. I’ll try. Thanks for that simple, but useful answer.
