i need to make it so when you mouse over an object, it plays an animation, but i need that animation to continue even AFTER you take the mouse off, how do you do this?? i try creating a button, but the animation stops once the mouse moves off of it, i need it to finish animating!
You make a movieclip with your different animations. To control what animation ( part of movieclip timeline) should play you make a invisible button ( just histate defined) and put it inside the movieclip.
Make a framelabel called rollOverAni at the start of your mouse over animation and then a framelabel called rooOutAni at the start of you roll out animation.
Then on the invisible button
