Question HELP.. HELP.. HELP.. Question


ok.. im pulling my hair out of my head trying to figure this s*** out

ok.. im not new to flash.. but im having trouble with action script

here is the situation

on my first frame, i have a buton that plays a movie when in the over and down position, if the mouse goes OUT, frame 3-11 apears on the stage and takes its place, does its thing.. then comes back to frame one

now. frame 2.. is the result of frame 1, after the buton on frame 1 is clicked, frame 2 comes in and does its thing.. then stops ( like i comanded it to.. )

now.. frame 13 is the end of my buton..and it has a movie on it that is about 150 frames long and 9 or 10 layers thick.. now.. what i want to do is , when freme 2 ends after its 100 or w/e # of frames, i want frame 13 to come in and just play ( frame 13 is the end. if u forgot)

how do i play frame 2 for how ever long it has to go.. and then jump to frame 13 WITHOUT ANY CLICKING OR ANYTHING??????[/img]

Flash's actionscript has GoToFrame or something along those lines. Using that, you can jump between frames and such.

In the last frame of the Movie clip add the code

_root.gotoAndPlay(13)

it's good, but the animation should be faster. Good design and interactivity makes sites look good, but they should not cut too much into the load and navigation speeds.
