    Button stops moving when ._alpha is changed


      I have a situation where a button (button1) is moving around the screen inside of a movie clip (links1) using a motion tween between two locations. However, if I add AS2 script to dynamically change the alpha, the button stops moving for some reason.

      links1.button1._alpha = 20;

      If I change the alpha globally using the color property slider it works and continues to move.

      If I put the button inside another movie clip first and change the alpha of that movie clip, it works, but I already did alot of tedious keyframing of the button so I would like to avoid this. Swapping the symbol only swaps it within keyframes, not the intire timeline animation.

      Why does changing the alpha of a button cause the movie to stop incrementing?
