    Pause external SWF loaded in container

      Hi there,

      I have a flash movie that loads external SWFs into a container movieclip in the main movie.

      The actual animation frames in these external SWFs are a couple of layers down in each clip, ie: a movieclip within a movieclip within a movieclip.

      I need to add a pause button in the main movie that will pause the currently playing movieclip. I think the problem lies in my not referencing the movieclip properly.

      Click here to download the FLA files to see what I am talking about!
      (Main movie FLA + 2 External Clip FLAs)

      Ideally I would like the "pause" button to function more as a "pause/resume", but I'm happy to take things one step at a time!

      If anyone could show me how to do this it would be VERY much appreciated. I have burned many hours on this!



      PS: If it's any help to my potential helpers, so far the most relevant post I have found is this one. I couldn't successfully apply this to my movie though. But then again I'm only learning!
