I have just taken frames from the main timeline and placed them into a movieclip that is in another movie clip. What do I do with all the actionscript references to _root (how to I change them to now go through two movieclip levels and then to _root)?

this._parent -> to access the parent movie
this._parent._parent -> to access the parent of the parent movie :D
that would be:
then, in myMC, this._parent.var1 = something -> it changes var1 from _root.mc1.mc2
