    [CS3] movieclip timeline navigation

    Hello, can anyone tell me how to go to a certain frame after a movieclip plays within a single frame?

    ive been trying to use that at the end of the timeline inside the movieclip using the root. function but its producing a
    '1061: Call to a possibly undefined method gotoAndStop through a reference with static type flash.displayisplayObject.' error.

    Do you know what im doing wrong?

    thanks, grebs

    Oh well in AS 3.0 you shouldn't be trying to reference the root from what I understand but I am not that familiar with AS 3.0 so I won't confused you anymore.

    did you find the answer? because I'm having the same issue... I'm used to using as2..but I'm converting to as3 and it's frustrating trying to change my ways!

    i had to use a code similar to this placed on the main timeline

    character_mc.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, moveFrame);
    var fn:Number = 20;

    function moveFrame(e:Event):void {
    if (e.target.currentFrame == 20) {
    gotoAndStop(3);
    e.target.removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, moveFrame);
    }
    }

    I hope this is helpful.
