Do child animations and "parent" animations always share the same timeline? Is there a way to fade up a word sequence at the very beginning of "Child 1" movie, and then 'place' the "Child 1" movie say, 90 frames in on the "parent" movie (at 30 fps) and have the fade up occur after 3 seconds in the parent movie? Presently it seems I also have to delay the fade-up in the child movie 90 frames in order for the fade up to appear in the parent movie.

Place a 'Stop movie' action at the beginning of the child movie. Use a 'Play movie' action in the parent movie on a key frame, 3 seconds into the parent movie.
