hi there,

i am really stuck.

I have a movieClip c and in this a movieClip called mc.

mc has the regristration point in the middle.

I would like to move c so that mc is in the center of the stage, but the problem is that mc is also rotated, so i need to calculate how much x and y I have to add because of the rotation.

this is what i have so far. My stage is 600x300.

```
const MID_STAGE_Y:Number = 200;
const MID_STAGE_X:Number = 300;
c.x= MID_STAGE_X-c.mc.x;
c.y= MID_STAGE_Y-c.mc.y;
c.rotation = c.mc.rotation*-1;
```

To understand the problem I set up a test fla. please take a short look. Probably this is pretty easy for someone understanding the math behind it. I would love to understand it myself but did not get it till now. Thanks in advance for any reply on this !
