This is the tried-and-true approach to what you describe. The playhead
will only navigate away if there is code that tells it to - perhaps you
didn't attach an appropriate behavior to your buttons? Can you upload a
(small) demo file somewhere?
Make sure you have placed markers to identify frame for the go next/ go previous actions.
You can find a movie here (Index.dir), which works much the way you describe. It uses labels (markers) and a frame script to hold the playback head within a range of frames:
Hi openspark. This script achieves the looping of the playhead, but I still experience the same problem as using the "_movie.go(_movie.frame)" approach. When the movie is played, the buttons do not navigate away from the looping frames. In addition, the mouse-over cursor which usually changes to a downward arrow over buttons does not appear when this script is in place. If I remove the script, the buttons navigate to the proper markers.
I have placed Markers at all starting points. The go Next seems like the wrong way to go because the video that button is linked to does not always come next in the score.
My button behaviors look like this:
