Flash - Use Movie Clip frame to start other Movie Clip

I have a movie with 2 frames, each with a different Movie Clip.
I want frame 2 to automatically play when the frame 1 Movie Clip reaches a certain frame.
When I searched, the only info I could find was for preloaders.

Please help. Thanks.

base on frame number or time?

if it is base on time say once the movie played for 60sec then gotoAndPlay(2)

use setInterval & clearInterval

base on the frame, that u can check on the movie that's playing use movieclip._frames

or ... simply ... add a simple script in ur 1st MC _root.gotoAndPlay(2) at the time when u want to play frame 2 ...

I'm not sure if this is what I understand your problem,

So you have two frames, put stop() on each frame, then at a certain frame of movieClip 1 you could say gotoAndStop(2). Let's assume that there's no stop() script of each movieClip in frame 1 so it is automatically play. But if you have stop() on the first frame of each movieClip, then on frame 2 of the main timeline _root.movieclip2.play();

hope this help,
