    loop / pause in movie clip - duration in seconds instead of number of frames

    ponch
      hi,

      i want to know if there's a smart way of creating long-ish, easily editable pauses in movies clips using actionscripting (instead of just throw in dozens more frames in the timeline)?

      i'm currently using a loop as such:

      i++
      if (i<500) {
      gotoAndPlay("waitingForUser");
      trace(i)
      } else {
      gotoAndPlay("autoScroll ");
      }
      this has it looping through 500 times so is obviously dependant on framerate. is there a way to do this and have it loop for for x amount of seconds instead?

      many thanks,

      ponch
