You can modify the _root properties, because in most regards the _root is just an instance of the MovieClip class.
However, depending on what you're doing, this might not be such a good idea, because then you lose the ability to put anything anywhere in your movie without it being moved by your growing tree. I would put your tree thing in a container MovieClip, and modify the container_mc's _x and _y.
thanks for the reply abeall,
I sort of get what you mean (yes thats right im not that good at flash)
I think I would put all the content in the relevant MC,
so lets say that the user clicked 'portfolio'
it then attached the relivant MC that did its path animation so it moved the _x and _y, at then end of the path guide animation in the time would be the content.
so it moves first, then displays all content after the move has completed.
then maybe assign something to stop all movement???????
im guessing that all this just exsits in my head and isnt actually possable, but im sure it is?
just need help!!!! :(
I'm sure it's possible. I'm not sure what exactly you want to do, but I get the basic idea. I would say you sahould first focus on making the growth to work how you want it. After that, you can focus on making a 'camera' follow the growth.
Have you gotten the growth working?
