how move a hit area for a movie in AS3

sousflai used Ask the Experts™
I have a movie clip which has a number of timeline elements inside which I need to place above a button though it's hit area should not interfere with the button beneath. I've used the hitArea technique which works great on sprites, the problem is that I have to use a movie clip with timelines and other movie clips inside. As soon as these are used the hitArea technique stops working. Is there an alternative that could work in AS3?
