Hi. I've done quite a long slideshow using AS2 rather than
keyframe animation, and I'd like to find out how many frames it
runs for in total. I want to export as a Quicktime movie, but
unless there are enough frames on the timeline the whole animation
won't export. I know _totalFrames works with keyframe animation but
is there a way of getting the same information if everything's done
in actionscript? Even a total time would be ok as I can easily
convert that to frames.

The concept of frames doesn't really apply in the same way
MovieClip._totalframes property is really nothing more than a
count of the
number of frames in a given timeline (that is, a given movie
clip). In your
case, make note of how many seconds it takes to transition
from one image to
the next, then multiply that number by the total number of
images in your
slideshow. That'll give you total time. When you export, use
time elapsed" choice under "Stop exporting."
