Trying to fade a SWF with actionscript on a button

I am a little new to flash so I don’t even know if this will even work. The AS on my button is as follows…

on (release) {
mcArea.loadMovie(“SWFs/swfFolder/miscImage1.swf” + “?uniq=” + new Date().getTime(), “mcArea”);

Now is it possible to add AS on this button for the SWF to fade in and out when other buttons are pushed? I’ve been looking though some forums, and I’m sure this has been asked and answered before, but I couldn’t find anything to help me out. Any help would be welcomed because this is really starting to drive me nuts.
