Duplicate Sprite

SWF Action
Action Category: 
Movie
Action Details: 
0
Action Identifier: 
36
Action Structure: 
<n.a.>
Action Length: 
0 byte(s)
Action Stack: 
pop 1 (i), pop 2 (s)
Action Operation: 
i1 := pop();
s2 := pop();
s3 := pop();
duplicate_sprite(s3, s2, i1);
Action Flash Version: 
4

s3 is the name of an existing sprite1 which is copied by this action.

The new sprite is given  the name s2 and is placed at depth i1.

The depth of a duplicated sprite is not used the same way in Flash 4 and Flash 5+. The depth parameter in this function is not clearly documented anywhere, but it looks like you need to have a depth of 16384 or more for a duplicated sprite to work properly (this is not visible to the high level ActionScript users.)

  • 1. Remember that a sprite, movie, thread and other terms that I forget, are all the same thing.
