    I need an animation for a spinning globe - so I got this animated GIF and then put each slide (7 or 8 of them) on one layer's consecutive frames and turned it into a Movie Symbol.

    Now I put this symbol onto the main movie. The problem is when the spinning globe shows, it has this SQUARE background - which is white - so it hides things around the globe. But I want it to hide things only within the circle of the globe.

    So How do I make the background of the globe transparent OR get a circular shape only?

    See the attached image - I want the white area to go away and expose the blue area beneath it ....

    PLUS a lot of other questions coming....

    Open it up in ImageReady, cut out the white using the magic wand in all frames, then reimport into Flash.

    I only have minimal experience with Flash 5 though and none really with MX...

    Go to the online programme "Gif Works" open file/Upload...Edit/ make transparent. you can take the white out, you can do loads of things in this programm even putting space around a gif for text etc etc....re.for transparency...I had to take your gif to "Irfanview" to resize it and turn it into gif format before I could put it in Gif works and turn the "white" transparent...Hope you understand all this....Goshpoddle
