    making movies play sequentially with script

    Hey everyone, wondered if i could pick your brains.
    I have 3 movies on my main timeline, all of the same instance.
    on frame 1 inside the movie it begins to play over several frames

    what i wanted to do was, through actionscript make the movies start sequentially. the 1st movie as soon as the main movie begins then the 2nd once the first reaches a certain frame and then the 3rd starting once the second hits a specific frame....follow me?? haha
    anyways, if you have input i would be muchly appreciative

    thanks alot

    Matt

    Place a unique frame label on the start frame for each movies starting point. Then when each movie reaches the point to call the next, use something like:

    gotoAndPlay("framelabel");

    You may have to add the appropriate targeting. (_root.""" or _parent.""")
