  • Start and stop movie clips? (Flash)

    I can't seem to get the syntax quite right on this. How do I start or play movie clips. Here's what I have so far: A movie clip called p5, and a movie clip inside that called pos4. And under p5's actions, I have pos4.stop(). But pos4 still plays. Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

      I figured it out. There was something called an "instance name" that I didn't know about,

        But while I have your attention. Is there any way to make flash movies play at the right speed in a web browser? What I mean is, if I have it set to 30 frames per second, and my movie is 30 frames long, how can I make sure it plays for exactly one second. it works fine in a stand alone player, but it seems to go slower in a browser.

          I'm really not sure, that should work fine, i guess you could always use setInterval instead as that is time based rather than frame based

            And while I have your attention (again), could you tell me how I can send data from a flash file to a php script? I've done it before, but I forgot how. I've searched all over and I've found a lot of people talking about loadVars, but I couldn't get it to work. I stayed up all night trying to figure it out until just now when I found out it doesn't work in flash 5.

                Because that's what I have. I tried flash MX, but I didn't like it for the partucluar animation I'md doing. I want to subtract from a dynamic text field, but instead of the value being "9", it's "<font size=whatever>9</font>" and I can't subtract that. So anyway, any ideas on how to do it in flash 5?

                  No, sorry. i only started using flash at Flash MX 2004, and I now use Flash 8.

                  i recommend you upgrade but thats just my opinion

                    I have Flash MX but I'm more comfortable with flash 5 for the above reason.
