    Embeding a swf

    Hi guys!

    Does anyone know how I can place a swf inside another swf?

    sure...the easiest way is from within flash to use target.loadMovie("yourmovie.swf");

    awesome cheers that seems to work,

    just wondering if i can make it so that the script inside the loaded movie doesn't effect the overall script

    when I click a "nextFrame" button it takes the main movie to the next frame instead of the loaded in swf.

    cheers

    you can try using this.nextFrame() in the loaded .swf...or make the call from the movie that is loading the .swf using target.nextFrame();
    Either of these will advance the loaded movie's playhead to the next frame.

    Hope this helps...

    ...or you can use target._lockroot = true; in your parent movie.

    awesome!! that works really well!

    This sounds really stupid now but is it possible to send variables to the main swf another way after using lockroot?

    Thanks!
