Now, lets make the other MC called director. Make it on the same way as the others and do not forget to name it in Instance option name dialog box, by right clicking on the Movie clip. Make 3 frames and assign actions: 1st
Begin Tell Target ("../") If (update>5) Go to Previous Frame End If End Tell Target Begin Tell Target ("../") If (update < -5) Go to Next Frame End If End Tell Target3rd label this frame:speed and assign action; go to frame 2 and play What this says, is that if the mouse was moved for more than 5 pixels to the right while pressed down, main movie (../) will go to the previous frame. If mouse is still hold pressed even not moved, timeline will go to the frame speed, then sent back to frame 2, what will move main movie one more frame back and so on. If Movie frame rate was set high, moving timeline from frame 2 to frame speed can be very fast, and movie can spin rapidly. To avoid that, we can give the movie more time to come from frame 2 to frame speed by moving frame speed to location of frame 5, 6 or even further location. Test your movie after finishing to determine the optimal speed and position of frame speed.
