with as2, no. with as3 yes, using the frameRate property of the stage class.
Ah thats good i'm using as3, sorry I'm not that much of a pro with flash could you explain in a little more deail how i'd do it? Like how to select the frame rate and change it for only a certain sequence of frames? Really appreciate the help!
you would use the following to assign a frame rate of 30:
Where do i select the stage is there a tab on the toolbar? And do i need to highlght the frames i want to change?

you need to know some basic actionscript. read enough of the flash help files or an online tutorial for new flash users.
There IS a way to have effectively different frame rates in an AS2 project.
The one hitch is that the main FPS has to be >= to the other frame rates.
The method that achieves this is setInterval.
In the MovieClip that you want to have a slower frame rate just do this (where you want 1 FPS) :
var intervalID = setInterval( this.nextFrame, 1000 );
then when you want to stop do this :
clearInterval( intervalID );
You can do a very similar thing with AS3, but no need since you can set individual FPS.
