    changing properties of MCs in arrays?

      Hey I'm just getting into actionscript and have no programming background...

      Is it possible to control movie clips that are indexed in an array?

      Detail:
      I have 35 circles arranged in a circle, each an instance of the same movieClip (call it MC). Each one has a number (mc1, mc2, etc.). I thought I could animate them by placing them in an array and using FOR statements. So each is indexed in this array (call it aMyArray). But it seems I cannot do this: for(i=0;i<aMyArray.length;i++){aMyArray ._alpha = nAlpha; nAlpha-=5;}

      Is this just a totally wrong use of arrays?
