I am trying to develop a simple application which allows
users to scroll through the timeline to see a new duplicated movie
clip on each new frame. I have two scroll buttons, left, and right.
left has prevFrame(); attached to it, and right has nextFrame();.
Basically, I have a movie clip, of simply 1 pixel, I made a button
which the user clicks to duplicate the movie clip of a pixel, which
it does so with the X coordiate incremented by 1, and since it is 1
pixel, it basically draws a line. That works fine no problem. The
problem is with the frame scrolling. I can go back and forth
between frames (use the left and right buttons to go through frames
1-10 right now, back and forth, both ways), but the duplicated
movie clips are displayed on every frame, there is no difference
between the frames. If I duplicate a movie clip on frame 2, then
advance to frame 3, make a ntoehr duplicate, advance to 4,
duplicate, etc., when I scroll back through the timeline, all
frames 1-4 in this example have 4 movie clips on them, I want frame
1 to have the original, 2 to have the original and the duplicate,
etc. Basically, I want to be able to not have the movie clip
duplicates created on every frame when I duplicate them, just the
one they were created on, and the frames which follow, not the
If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated.
