    Hi all,

    I am a novice, and need some guidance regarding adding a layer to a currenct fla movie i am editing, I need that layer to load a clip from my existing library, but what i am trying to find out is after adding a layer how do we edit the objects/symbols and make it start from a specific timeline, also is there anyway to edit "tweened images"??

    Thanks in advance.

    to edit the existing images, just simply double click them, remember if they are locked, you won't be able to edit them. to unlock them, click on the padlock on the layer.

    to make the movie start from a different frame in the movie add this script to frame 1 or any frame you wish to re-direct from

    ifFrameLoaded (1) {
    gotoAndPlay (20);
    where 1 is the frame you wish to re-direct from and 20 being the frame you wish to direct to

    hope this is what your after
