Aha. Well, there's an important thing you should know. Once your SWF
is compiled, those layers are gone. They're an organizational metaphor for
authoring, but the concept of "layers" is translated, though a complex
process, into "depths," so ActionScript doesn't really ignore layers, but it
doesn't treat them the way you might expect.

Target your ActionScripted work *inside* a movie clip, then use
ActionScript to fade that movie clip in. I couldn't really tell from your
post, so I'm not sure if you're already doing that (or trying to). You said

What movie clip? ActionScript doesn't create content that you can place
on the timeline by hand, so I'm not sure which movie clip you're putting
where. But in any case, you can either create an empty movie clip, give
that an instance name, and aim your scripted visuals at that clip -- in
which case its layer position will still work in comparison to other layered
movie clips -- or you can create this empty movie clip with ActionScript.

i'm sure there is. what code are you using that's not working?
p.s. layers in flash are an authoring environment convenience and don't exist (as such) after publication. all on-stage objects are assigned a depth by flash and those depths are influenced by the layer an object is in.
