    Why does setting a MovieClip's alpha prevent it from moving in another keyframe?


      I have a MovieClip, named "thing", that's in one position and in another position on the next frame. I added an eventlistener to "thing" to advance frames. Very simple, everything works fine.


      I then add "thing.alpha = 0.5" in the button's event listener. Now when I publish the file, thing fades but doesn't move. Someone please explain?!!






      p.s. For reference, here's the entirety of my AS3 on the first frame:



      import flash.events.MouseEvent;




      thing.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, doClick);


      function doClick(evt:MouseEvent):void {

                thing.alpha = 0.5;
