Guess I'm just dumb but I've been tinkering with KM and I don't see a way to stop the movie from looping.....anyone care to put me out of my misery?

Under the Movie menu in sounds and actions-(the short cut is [ALT]-M then S), you must assign the action of stop movie on your last frame.

You could also edit the HTML to stop the movie from looping but I'm not going to go there.

Thank you! I tried the html approach but it didn't seem to do anything.....

You need to include loop false in both parts of the javascript. I think this is mentioned in the help (see loop or looping in the index).

Its gonna be in both the embbed tag (for Netscape) and Object Tag (For IE)

The HTML route is the hardest. Just add a stop action at the end of your movie. It's a lot easier and if you are just using the SWF (becuase you are using the Flash in a PP presentation, Screen Saver app, by itself on a CD, E-mail, ETC) then the HTML method probably won't work becuase their will be no HTML. There are times when a SWF by itself is apropriate.
