Like many beginner problems, this is painfully simple and obvious to the
experienced Flash user, but it hangs up many new users for hours or even days.
This problem hung me up for a day and a half.
I had a continuous loop animation that served as the background of my page. I also had several menu animations that I wanted to animate once and then stop. The problem was that when the movie looped, the stopped animations would go off again. I needed a way to make the background animation loop continuously while the menu elements animated once and then stopped. I asked questions on the FlashKit Newbie Forum and someone answered my question. I did an example flash movie using the information and this is the result. I hope it helps you too.
