you reference nested clips using dot notation BUT the parent clip must be on a frame where the child exists. for example, if the _currentframe of parentMC contains childMC, you could reference the frame number of childMC that's a child of parentMC using:
if childMC only exists on frame 2 of parentMC and parentMC is on its first frame, then you would need:
