The answer(s) to your question depend(s) on the definition of the words
you're using. Let's break it down ...

Not sure what you mean by "looping array." I think you're asking, "When
would I loop through an array to create a motion sequence?" If that's it,
my answer would be, "When you want to handle a motion sequence that requires
the programmatic animation of several movie clips at once.

The wording of this one confuses me a bit. I think you're asking, "When
would I use an different approach -- not looping through an array, but
something else -- to create a sequence?" If that's it ... well, that's such
a broad question, I might answer, "When you don't necessarily want to handle
a motion sequence that requires the programmatic animation of several movie
clips at once."

As for how it would be written, that depends on plenty, plenty, plenty
more detail.

i.ve been using onMotionFinished.
i just wanted to know how else would a animation be programmed where one mc occurs after the other.
what would be another approach?

microes,

That's an event of the Tween class. The Tween class is one of many ways
to programmatically animate movie clips.

I'm sure there are as many ways as a programmer can imagine. ;) It
depends on what you're trying to accomplish, microes.
