    Dynamicly referencing movieclips

    Hello. I'd like to know how I can achieve this in AS3. The code would work fine in AS2, but as I am very new to AS3 I am not sure what the equivalent would be in AS3. Thanks!

    humanNum = 1;
    MC = ["Human"+humanNum];

    As you can see I can just easily change "humanNum" to a different number to reference different movieclips - Human1, Human2, Human3, etc.
    However I can not do it this way in AS3.

    Thanks in advance!

    If those MovieClips already exist and are on the stage, then
    PHP Code:
    MC containerOfThoseMovieClips.getChildByName ("Name of the MovieClip");
