Can you put the bitmap inside a movie clip, and get pixel data from a parent to make a new bitmapdata object?

It seems like that would enable you to get around that problem; yet, again, I haven't played with this, nor do I have time to unfortunately, so I am not sure.

Thanks, I've already written this code by myself.

Unfortunately, it does not work because of security issues.
You are not allowed to use BitmapData.draw to retrieve pixels containing
media from a domain other than your own.

Alternatively, just copy the bitmap and smooth it:

I have a bitmap image loaded from external site (Facebook user avatar).
Its size is 50x50 pixels and it looks very pixelated when the Flash Stage
size changes.
The image would look much better if it was smoothed.

But, smoothing does not work for images loaded from external domains.
MovieClip.forceSmoothing = true just does not work.
However if the image resides on the same server as the script, smoothing
works like a charm.

Do you know how can I smooth the bitmap?
Is it possible?
