Hi i have the same problem but your solution is not working.
if i use
thisMC = LoaderMax.getContent(clips[index].name).rawContent as MovieClip;
everytime the variable take the value null but if i use
var content:ContentDisplay = LoaderMax.getContent(clips[index].name);
the movie clip apear on the screen. The problem is that i need to access this like a movieClip.
if you have a solution on this please let me know. Thanks!
Somehow i resolved this. if i use for loading my movieclips from an xml file with XMLLoader is not working, but if i load with SWFLoader separately every movieclip from that xml file is working. in my opinion in XMLLoader is some bug. Because i tryied all the posibile way to take rawContent from the loader i tryied with LoaderMax.getLoader(clips[index].name).rawContent and the same rawContent was null.
