    This may not be the only way to do "layers" but this is the way that I do
    it:

    I create my replaceMC, starting with a blank graphic that I convert to a
    Movie Clip, I name it replaceMC.

    Then saying that I want to click a button to have the content load I would
    put this on a button:

    on (release) {
    _root.replaceMC.loadMovie("myMovie.swf");
    }

    You can also do this on like an enterFrame or what ever too.

    To get placement proper I like to draw a square the size that the content
    will be loaded into then cut and paste that into a new movie.

    create a movie clip and name it. {holder_01}
    {draw a box / convert to symbol - movie clip - name: holder_01 (then delete the graphic elements that made up the box. your left with a white dot representing the upper left corner of the movie clip area.) }

    attach the following to the "frame" of the movie clip
    LoadMovie ("coolmovie.swf", "holder_01")

    this will load the movie when you parent SWF file loads and there is no need for a button event.

    your post was not specific so just gave another option.
