TL;DR: See title.
I'm currently using Animate CC to export layers to swfs as I'm sending those swfs to be layered around a video screen. I need a degree of automation that is better than a loop.
The aim is to synchronize a cartoon character's animation and world(settings, overlays, other characters) across multiple swfs while any of the swfs themselves are able to change the variables in the external file. I plan to use a random number generator to start a character's action; like a blink, for example. The external variables are meant to be a multiplier for a loop that, over time, steadily increases the chance that a scene will end the loop. Once the loop is ended, I'm looking to alter the character's state to a new animation 'standing' (so all of the individual swfs can now read character.State = "standing"; that starts the "standing" animation) Once complete, it will change the state to "stand". That kind of thing.
Would really appreciate some guidance and thanks for your time.

you can create a text or xml or json or file and have that supply variable/values used by a swf (or swfs) to control animation.
p.s. i believe this would be challenging for someone with intermediate as3/animate cc knowledge.
