Re: i am having two movie clips i want to disable all...

Please elaborate your problem a little bit. What do you mean by "opening a movie clip"? Anyway, you can use first_mc.enabled=false; while the second movie clip is in action.

1. Make them as indiviual movie clips, with cyclic motion sequence with autoplay
2. Catch the mouse over the clip event to stop playing
3. Catch the mouse click event of the clip to open the link

* U may also have the data and links in separate files and rotate them with time, by another script :)


Have a nice time

Was my suggestion helpful???

you have to make a separate nested animation (try to avoid tweening by having everything as symbols) and place/drop that movie into the mouse hover event of the intended button...

DuplicateMovieClip command

Don't write the code inside the movie clip. Also use the following code. I've added one more line which will move your duplicated movie clip 100 pixels right so that you can view both.

setProperty("_root.one1_mc", _xscale, "30");
setProperty("_root.one1_mc", _x, getProperty("_root.one1_mc",_x)+100);

Hotw to create...

1.  Convert all of your small pics into movie clips and name them as scroll1_mc, scroll2_mc, etc.
2.  Select all the movie clips and convert them to a single movie clip and call it as scrollGroup_mc.
3. Again convert the scrollGroup_mc to a movieclip and call it as scroll_mc.
3.  Now, double click the scroll_mc, and create your tween (in your favorite direction) using scrollGroup_mc.
4. Now, attach the following code in the root's timeline. (Make sure that you should not inside of any movieclip)



Likewise, you can add this code to scroll2_mc, scroll3_mc etc.

My best advice for these things is instead of repeating the code for all movie clips, you can use OOPS concepts to extend the movie clip class.
