In my course in multimedia I am supposed to use the action script play() in a motivated fashion. But I can't seem to fit it in my animation in a natural way. If I don't use it, the animation will play anyway so what is it for? The other commands stop, gotoAndPlay and gotoAndStop, also needed in my assignment, are easy to see the use for but not play, since the animation will play anyway. Any suggestion to when to use play?
