Thanks for answering.  I have a few questions:

1.  Do I include the "checking code" above in both flash/swf files?
2.  For mc1.x = 200, what does the 200 mean?
3.  There are 2 layers-actions and objects and 3 keyframes in the action layer, loadmovie() is in the 1st keyframe, checking is in the 3rd keyframe, what go's in the 2nd keyframe? Where do I put the keyframe in for the objects?
4.  Please explain your use of container?

I really appreciate your help.

1. To sync the two flash/swf files you will have to load them into one using the "loadMovie()" command inside 2 empty movie clips. Your actionscript goes there.

2. 200 is the x position for the movie clip, you can change that to whatever.

3. you only need 1 keyframe in the "Objects" layer. That's where your 2 empty movie clips are.  3 keyframes in "actions" - the first one is initialization, and the start of loading.  The second is blank, but it's necessary for the looping and third is checking if the movies are loaded yet and loops back to frame 2.

4. Containers are 2 empty movieclips that will have your swfs loaded into them.

So you are taking the 2 seperate movies and loading them into one movie and then you would embed that 1 movie into a webpage?
