Through experimentation (with Flash, not with any other substance :-)), I came up with the idea to have a dummy movie (dummy.swf) load the movie with the distortion onto level 1 (or really any higher level). The dummy movie was defined with the same frame rate and size as the real movie, notgood.swf.
Dummy.swf contains only one frame,
and it's action is
loadMovieNum ("notgood.swf", 1);
Now when I run dummy.swf, I get
which is what I want. Voila!
What the #$X!@? Happened?
I really have no idea why this problem occurs or why what I have done has fixed it. I hope the people at Macromedia are listening and can tell us what is going wrong!
