I am not quite sure what you are asking, but if you want to randomly display a different color each time a movie clip loads, you need to use a "randomizer" script and some variables to display a new color each time the page has been refreshed...

start by adding the below script to the first frame of a movie clip or button (on release):

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
x = (Math.round(Math.random()*6));
     if (x == 1) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);
     } else if (x == 2) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);
     } else if (x == 3) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);
     } else if (x == 4) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);
     } else if (x == 5) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);
     } else if (x == 6) {
          objColor = new Color(_root.frameColor2);

------------- end code ----------------

frameColor2 is the instance name of the movie clip that will have the background color change...
