F8 duplicating movie clips


I’ve built a tsunami menu and I’ve finally got the effect working nicely however I’ve got 8 external jpegs which make up the content and I’d like the movie to loop through the 8 images until the user clicks on one of the menu items (in which case the movie would jump to which ever scene was selected by the user). At the moment the duplicated menu items scale big when selected however I can’t get it to scale big without user interaction as the jpeg sequence loops. Does anyone have any suggestions?!

Also, the other difficulty I’m having is that each time the movie loops it seems to duplicate the menu items again. Can I prevent this from happening?

I’ll attach the source file for you to take a look at. I’d be so grateful fo any help on this!

Thanks in advance
