I am having a problem and my Professor is not answering my e-mails:
I created two buttons and I wanted them to be animated when I hovered on them with my mouse.
I created this animation in the "over" section, but when I play the whole flash file these buttons play both the up and the over animations, and my mouse is not even close to them. I have created a shape in the "Hit" section that covers the button, but that didn't solve my problem.
if you are using simple buttons (and not movieclip buttons), then only the up animation will play when your button first appears and is not moused over.
if you have a movieclip button, you need a stop() in its first frame.
I think they are movieclip buttons, although I create them as simple buttons, they assume the movieclip icon when I am inside them
What first frame are you refering to: the first frame in the main timeline or the first frame inside the button?
you should see your button symbol in the library. if it has a movieclip icon, you need to add a stop() to that movieclip's first frame.
