Movie clips

Just wondering if there is some Action Script that will hold my playhead in the maintime line until a movieclip has played through in its entirety?

something like a _framesplayed evaluation.

Thanks so much…

Try this …

Assuming that your MC is one step removed from the main timeline (i.e. that the path to your MC is _root.MCinstanceName)

Put this AS in the first frame of your MC

Put this AS in the last frame of your MC;

(There is a retrievable property _currentFrame if you want to go that route - but the above might be handier)
