Also, I have a movieClip playing not within the movieClip being stopped, and it continues to loop as desired.
use movie explorer and
1. search for actionscript only: stop().
then check the list of movieclips for the one you don't want to stop. if it's listed remove any stop()'s.
2. then search actionscript only for: <the movieclip instance name that you don't want to stop>.gotoAndStop(
3. then search actionscript only for: <the movieclip instance name that you don't want to stop>.stop()
The only actions so far in this project are "stop();", there are no others yet.
It doesn't have a stop function on it, its parent MC, when stopped, stops it (the child MC).
It did however help me. The "MC" that was unrightfully stopping was accidentally set to graphic. OOPS!
Thanks very much.
so, your problem is solved by using a movieclip instead of graphic?
Yea. But in CS4 you can animate a graphic I guess.
