    Starting a movie after another movie is finished

    vrish88
      hello

      i have a series of movie clips that I want to play sequentially. For some I would like them to play one right after another and others that have a pause in between. I have the first part worked out but it is sloppy and there is code all over the place. is there a set, clean way to accomplish this?

      peace

          If you give all the movie clips instance names, you can tell them to play from the last frame of the preceeding movie. Assuming the mcs are all on the root of the flash, you would have this code on the last frame of each movie:

          _root.nextmovieclip.play();

          Where 'nextmovieclip' is the instance name of the next movie.

            Yeah that's what I have been doing. I guess I should have been clearer. Is there anyway to consolidate the code so that it stays on the _root timeline?

            I have also used this method, shown in the attached code. I have tried to do other things with that code but it hasn't worked. Can anything else be done w/ the attached code or is that the most it can do?
