Ok, i have an mc that gets called into my main movie in an empty clip mc that i made when the user rolls over the button in the main movie.

When the outside mc gets done playing..i want it to go away...and the original button below it, on the main movie, will be able to be viewed again.

So..what kind of code do i put in on the last frame of the outside mc...to let this occur?

ANy help..much appreciated.. :lol:

thanx,

I'm still a little unclear on what you want, but...

It seems that, when you roll over the button, an external .swf loads into an empty movieclip on a layer higher than your main movie.
So... I think the best way to go about things would be to set a keyframe on your main movie "x" frames out from the moment where the external swf loads (where "x" is the whole length of the external clip.) In this keyframe, write
unloadMovie("empty");
which will remove the external clip from the empty movieclip holder.

Does that work for ya?
