In my flash video I have a group of falling rocks. I made these falling rocks by double clicking on a motion tween object, the scene area looks like this:    Scene 1   -->  Tween 17      and I'm in tween 17. The falling rocks animate fine but when they get finished falling the animation repeats itself. How can I get these rocks to stop at the final frame and then act as a static element in the rest of the film. Here is the video to watch:

Thanks for any advice.

can you convert tween17 to a movieclip?  then you could use the stop(); command on the frame you want it to stop at

I tried right clicking on my stones while in Scene 1 then selecting "convert to symbol" then movie with registration in the top left but when I do the rocks stop animating. How do I convert it to a movie without losing the animation?

Ok. So i figured out that when I converted the tween to a movie clip I could double click on the shape in the movie clip to open up the old animation I had. This animation however isn't playing. How do I get it to play? Thanks.

In the timeline select the frames of the tween then right click them and select copy.
Create a new symbol (movieclip)
enter the clip
paste the old frames in the timeline
in the last frame go to the action script and add "stop();" without the ""
hope this helps
