and trace(this.ANIMopen) shows you have the correct instance name? if so, then something else must be controlling your movieclip's alpha. eg, there's an alpha tween started on frame 15.
i just tried the trace(this.ANIMopen); and it returns undefined..
i have NO clue whats up
and a trace(this.ANIMopen._alpha); should return a 100 if its visible right??
it returns a "undefined"
your movieclip instance name is incorrect. click on your movieclip and check the properties panel.
i dont think it is...
i used the location tool in the actionscripting window ( the thing that looks like a target)
and i located the clip that way then just put a ._alpha on the end of it
i just went and added a instance name to the first frame of this anim and it returned a value
which leads me to think its a scope problem ... but these are all in the same MC????
how would it not have access to that variable?
what does trace(this.ANIMopen) on frame 15 show now?
is what we get returned from that
actually i just figured out how to get the alpha to work
now my next question is how do i actually get it to FADE through the frames 1-15 to the 0 alpha in frame 15?
id assume something like declaring the _alpha of the clip in the first frame would do something like that?
so it doesnt look like i can declare the alpha of the instance on frame 15 in frame 1
is there any selector that i can use to specify what frame an instance is in?
what was causing the problem that you figured out?
i really didnt FIX the problem but what i did is i declared a variable in the first frame ( which pulled its value from outside the clip)
then set the _alpha to the value of the variable
easiest way i can think to describe what i did is :
instead of pushing the _alpha value from the first frame in to the 15th i had the 15th pull the variable from another layer on frame 15 and set it equal to the alpha pulled from the first frame.
but the thing still stands that i cant get the fade to ANIMATE
frames 1-14 its solid and then in 15 it just goes clear -- how can i get the animation to ease in the _alpha change?
then you still don't have the correct name for that movieclip.
on the first frame of your movieclip (that you want to fade), put:
what's that reveal?
