    ok here is my question

    i have a button that loads a new .swf within a movie clip (the script isnt really important but i uncluded it just in case)

    Button:
    on (release) {
    gotoAndPlay (38);
    loadMovie ("abt_lg.swf", _root.transition.content);
    }

    now within the movie "about_lg.swf", i have a button that i would like to make the movie clip from the last file (_root.transition) play.

    is this possible to do?

    thanks!
    Greg

    If you load an swf into a movie clip, you can just use a movie clip path to communicate between movie clips. So from the swf in your MC _root.transition.content, you could write:

    _parent.gotoAndPlay(whatever)

    if you want to control _root.transition timeline.
