I am busy building a Flash slide show and I've set up the show so that each slide is a new scene. In slide 3 I have placed 3 small target movie clips on the stage and scripted the movie to load 3 smaller movie clips into the targets at certain points on the time line.

The "next" and "previous" buttons which control the flow of the slide show work fine if I take out the loadmovie part but the slide stops and will not proceed if I put them back in.

Please could someone help me with this.

    Just select the first frame of that slide and write:


    as nextScene() means "go to and stop on the first frame of the next scene"
