Not really sure where to start, but here is the situation.. I exported a 3d model from vecta3d and I use that model in 8 different scenes in my flash movie. The problem that I am having is that every time I go to a different scene the 3d model starts at frame one again. Which makes it look very dirty and choppy. I am wondering if there is away to make it keep on going in all 8 scenes with out stopping.

You need to use a seperate swf and use the "load movie command" and load the animation into a level. Levels are not effected by the scene change. I would suggest you start using the movie clip and tell target command to build your sites in one scene. Things are going to become even more dependent on this type of interaction with Flash 5 comming out. Regards, Bill

If you look in your book you will see that you can call the
level that the swf is in. If the object is a movie clip you can even send a command to it as I have provied code below.

On (Press)
Begin Tell Target ("_level1/2")
Go to and Stop (3)
End Tell Target
End On

You have to plan this out a bit, you have to know the "instance name of the movie clip" in the loaded swf in order to call it. If you look at the code about the instance name of the move is "2" and the swf has been loaded into level1. Hope this helps you out. Regards, Bill

Create targets in the time line. And then use the go to command in actionscript to tell it where to start.
