OverLaid Property


set the overLaid of <movie> to <boolean>
set the playStyle of <movie> to overLaid Applies to movies (Macintosh only)


When the value of overLaid is set to true, objects appear on top of the movie during movie playback. When the value of overLaid is set to false, the movie appears on top of the objects during playback. The false value is recommended whenever objects do not intersect the movie or they are completely transparent. The overLaid boolean property is an alternative to the playStyle property. The true value results in reduced playback performance, and is recommended only for small movies. The overLaid property does not apply if the controller is visible. This means that controllerVisible must be false and the movie's style must not be set to control to use the overLaid property.
