Slowing down movies with actionscript

Hi guys,

I’m a pretty big novice when it comes to flash and I’m still trying to grasp a lot of the basics. I recently completed a flash movie and presented it to the client. He likes it, but we’ve been playing around with the length of the transitions. Its a pain to keep going in and adjusting the length via the timeline. Is there a way I can place delays or slowdown the timeline via action script so that I can just go in there and change the values when I want to speed up or slow things down. This would really save me a lot of time.
