Good idea, but I don't manage to make it work
I put the following exerpt of your script under case 0:
case 0://C R O S S F A D E R
//_root.traceTxt.text = "Image loaded";// checks out fine
_root.traceTxt.text = _root.fade.ImageNew._width;
wanted to see if it functions, but I get nothing, as if it doesn't load the image.
if only I could get this to work I have all the ingredients I need to resize the MC
