    control MC on main timeline through external swf??

    Can someone explain to me how to code from an outside SWF that needs to have a button that will close the swf - go to some type of ending animation and then at the end of that, go to a frame within the timeline of an attached MC?

    In order to reference the master document I had to use an absolute reference from the _root level (vs. _parent...). In addition, keep in mind that you have to trigger the ending animation and goto commands BEFORE closing the swf. If you need to hide the swf then just change the visiblility/alpha until the script has finished, then close the swf. Hope this helps. Good luck!
