# Stop the snow

Hello…
I have followed directions on how to make snow fall.

http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/snow.htm

## I used the oval tool to make a round snow drop. Converted it into a movie and named it “winter”. In the movie clip instance the name is “snow”. I right ckicked the snow drop and clicked Actions. Entered this:

//specifies the size of the movie stage
movieWidth = 300;
movieHeight = 200;

//variables that will modify the falling snow
i = 1+Math.random()*2;
k = -Math.PI+Math.random()*Math.PI;

## //giving each snowflake unique characteristics this._xscale = this._yscale=50+Math.random()*100; this._alpha = 75+Math.random()*100; this._x = -10+Math.random()*movieWidth; this._y = -10+Math.random()*movieHeight; } onClipEvent (enterFrame) { //putting it all together rad += (k/180)*Math.PI; this._x -= Math.cos(rad); this._y += i; if (this._y>=movieHeight) { this._y = -5; } if ((this._x>=movieWidth) || (this._x<=0)) { this._x = -10+Math.random()*movieWidth; this._y = -5; } }

ON THE 11th LEVEL OF FRAME 1, I ENTERED THIS A/S:

## for (k=0; k<50; k++) { duplicateMovieClip(this.snow, “snow”+k, k); }

It’s works fine! But…
I only want it to snow for 75 of the 400 frames I have.

I tried using the removeMovieClip (“winter”); on level 11 frame 75
but it doesn’t work.
What am I doing wrong?
