Seems like a stupid question  but.....

1. I have created a movie clip
2. Inside that movie clip I have defined a function, in this case call it this

function TestDemo(ImageURL:String):Void {

    trace(ImageURL);

}

3. I have created two instances on the _root level, named 'ClipOne' and 'ClipTwo'
4. When I call my function from the _root level like this:

ClipOne.TestDemo("credits/1.jpg");
ClipTwo.TestDemo("credits/2.jpg");

Nothing seems to happen at all, I don't get the trace result at all.
Is there something stupid I have done, or can I not call a function like this in Studio 8? I did it all the time in Flash 5.....

Cheers,

Butterhook

seems perfectly fine to me, i suggest you check your publish settings (file menu). Try to see if the "omit trace actions" check box is checked, if so, uncheck it.

Found the problem - I was attempting to call the function in the first frame of the _root timeline. Moved it to the second frame and it worked perfectly. Thanks
