    Is there any way of doing this? For instance, I would like to be able to do something like:

    on (press) {
    [/directory/anothermovie.swf].movieclipName.play ();

    (the bit in square brackets represents the path through the directory structure to the other movie clip).

    Any help on this would be much appreciated!

    for your requirement you have to load the movie i.e the swf you want to control in a movie clip through load movie action and then you can control it with the instance name

    for eg

    you have a movie by name test.swf in a folder and in the same folder you have a movie by the loader .fla

    now in loader.fla you have to place a new blank movieclip by an instance name say testLoader drag it on to the stage and then in the action for that instance of the clip


    now this instance of movieclip can be controlled as a normal movie clip .
