Controlling playback of movieclips from the main timeline
Posted on 2007-08-03
Hi. I have created a movie in Flash 8. On the main timeline one layer consists of three movie clips positioned sequentially (i.e. the first movie clip mcIntro is in frame one, mcMiddle is in frame two, and mcEnd is in frame 3). I would like a button on the main timeline that would, when clicked, pause whichever movie clip is playing, and then change into a play button so the same movie is restarted from the position where it was initially paused. I'm stuck right from the start because I don't know how to specify that the button is to control whichever movie clip happens to be playing. Thanks a lot for the help!
