    Dynamically Changing the FPS

    As in, changing the frames per second for so that all movieclips on screen will slow down for a nice, pretty Finishing Move. Is it possible? If it is... I have a bad feeling I missed something obvious. I did peruse through the ActionScript Dictionary before posting here, however.

    I am using Flash MX ((and compiling in Flash 6? Does that help, or even matter?))

    You can't.
    You can skip frames to give the impression of a faster pace, but it'll only be a workaround.

    I think you can technically do it with Javascript, but haven't tried it myself. Check out the help files, look for the "framerate" property.

    you cant dynamically change the framerate but can have the same effect by using setInterval. for e.g suppose you have a box called mcBox. Then put a stop action in the first frame of the mcBox. The following will then move through its frames at a speed of 48 frames a sec


    Code:
    var nFramerate:Number = 48;
    
    var nFrame:Number = setInterval(mover, 1000/nFramerate);
    
    
    function mover():Void{
    	mcBox.nextFrame();
    	updateAfterEvent();
    	if(mcBox._totalframes == mcBox._currentframe){
    		clearInterval(nFrame);
    		trace("clear");
    		}
    }
