_parent, _root etc

umm i used to have actionscript in a MC wanting to affect something on the main timeline.I used _root. Now i changed around stuff… The actionscript is now in a MC, that MC is in another MC, and MC containing the MC is in the Main timeline. What do i use to do this now?

If you still want to manipulate the main timeline, it’s still _root.

Have a look at this tutorial, it explains paths very well:
