    sprite

    my impression is a Sprite is really like an emptyMovieClip...but i am sure it is much more than that....i have read about a bit, but it seems most assume we already know what a Sprite is...will someone point me in the right direction, or simply define its value?

    A Sprite object is similar to a movie clip, but does not have a timeline. Sprite is an appropriate base class for objects that do not require timelines. For example, Sprite would be a logical base class for user interface (UI) components that typically do not use the timeline.

    emptyMovieClip is about as close as it gets... though new MovieClip is also an empty movie clip. Sprite just gives you the empty movie clip without the timeline functionality (gotoAndPlay, etc) built in
