I don't believe so.

It may be possible if instead of using scenes, to use another flash movie with a different FPS setting.  Then from movie 1 passing control to movie 2.

Yeah, the FPS is a hard-coded value into the movie itself, so you're going to have to actually create 2 different movies, load them both, and transfer control with the Load Movie and Unload Movie commands.

actually, with all due respect to these posters...

frame rate in a flash movie is global. it is set in the authoring environment and cannot be changed at runtime. additionally, once set, the frame rate is the same for *all* timelines - main timeline, movie clips and also loaded movies.

you can see this documented here:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/loading_movie_clips.htm

the only way to control how fast or slow the playback is, is to add or delete more frames. the frame rate setting is only set once and applies to everything.

it appeared in your answer that you suggested to use load movie to allow another movie to have a different frame rate. i clarified this by explaining that this wouldn't work, gave a physical example of this via the technote. apologies if you feel i misinterpreted your suggestion -  you know your stuff. :>)

it's possible to change the frame rate but in a very crude manner, it willl work for sure.

But i won't answer it for 10 points
