    Movie within a button

    TNchicklet
      Within a movie, if you mouseover a button, another clip plays (spinning DVD). However, when you continue to mouseover the button and reach the spinning DVD inside the button, it disappears. When you click on the area where the spinning DVD is suppose to be at, it appears and will be allowed to be dragged and dropped into a DVD Player to launch a movie clip (flv). Why does mouseover a clip make it disappear when it is visible during mouseover the button? The spinning DVD is inside the button area. Thanks in advance for your help. I'm in the U.S. Army and there is no one else to turn too. PLEASE HELP :(

          What is the "it" that disappears -- the DVD, maybe the button?

          Okay. I *think* I know what you're after, but there are a number of
          ways to accomplish what you've described in Flash, so it would definitely
          help if you could explain your steps. :)

          This depends greatly (entirely?) on how your clip and button are built.

          When you say "inside the button area" do you mean inside one of the
          frames of the button symbol itself?

          I'm happy to help you out, but we're going to need to break this down
          into clear sub-goals -- then we'll knock each one out, in turn. :)
