I've just added the tutorial (PDF file + two sample MOVIES) to the Flashkit Tutorials section.
IT HAS NOT, as of 5 January, BEEN REVIEWED YET.
These are the coordinates ;

Ok here we go. Moving a layer did work, just not like you thought.
Firstly getting the animation in as a gif does work sometimes. Contrary to what I posted before, do use transparency but the first frame seems to alwasy get it wrong, just fix the first frame of your loaded GIf once it's an animation.
Put this child movie in a layer and set "Has properties" and "allow Volocity and Accleration".
In the main move set the volocity of the x and y of the layer and it will indeed move, and keep moving. You can take control of this wiht a list of actions and manuly set the x and y if you'd rather. I'm sure this will work for the original posters application.
As soon As I remember the damn password to the into3dfa site I'll post it there.

I was holding off buying IFA because of the trouble I had doing animation - it was a sore dissapointment ; I had made a cute Christmas Card that worked in the interface but was un-exportable.

Marc, I image the buttons you are not seeing are the "advanced" interface buttons, at the top of your movie and every element there is a pull down that lets you select between Simple and Advance interface. Make sure you are in Advance.
I wish 3dfa would remeber what kind I used last and default to that rather than "Simple" for everything.
I'm sure that the method I used will do what you wanted, for me the real problem with export is that "MOVE" events don't work right, most everything else does for the most part. There are a few oddities but overall it's WAY easier to do some things in 3dFA than anyother program. Look at my animated menu tutorial. I tried doing something like this in FLASH 5 and was lost, I Designed made the menu and made the tutorial in a few hours in 3dFA
