    deleting a frame

    Level 7
      I'm familiar with the ability to delete the current frame while in score
      recording mode. But deleteFrame () only seems to delete the frame where the
      playback head sits even if I put a frame number in as a parameter...it seems
      to ignore the parameter. Is there a way to delete a specific frame that is
      not where the playback head is?

          You cannot put a frame number in as a parameter.
          _movie.deleteFrame() deletes the current frame and makes the next frame the new current frame during a Score generation session only.

            Hi,
            Just an idea: Maybe you can set the updatelock, go to the frame, delete it, and return to your original frame.

              The problem was that there was some corruption when a cast member was
              deleted before it's representation in the score was deleted. I don't think
              this is a common or typical problem but whenever I put the playback head on
              that frame even with the movie not running, Director would crash so I
              thought deleting the frame using Lingo with the playback head elsewhere
              would work.

              As it turns out, I selected the channel in which the suspect sprite resided
              and hit delete and the problem dissappeared. Fortunately there were no
              other sprites in that channel

              Thanks for your responses.
