Functionality question, best way to deal with multiple movieclips inside of one

Hey All,

I have a functionality question, hopefully someone can give me their advice on how to do this best.

I have three movie clips on my stage. Each one of those movie clips contains two child movie clips. I want to fade in/out the children movie clips so that one is visible at a time.

What I figured was to make a main movie clip


and inside of that, have

box1 and box2

and then fade box1 in and out as often as I’d like. Then of course repeat these steps for my other two main movie clips




Is there a better way to accomplish this?
