    Default Playing a movie clip when leaving a frame

    Hello, what's this called when you play a movi clip when you leave a frame.

    Like the swf on this page: http://www.rednoseday.com/

    How do the movie clips play when exiting a frame, rather than just going right to the next frame, it plays a movie clip where the scene will fall off the page.

    Thanks, I know there's a name for this, just can't think of it.

    Well... technically it isn't exiting the frame to play more movie clips.

    It's called a transition.

    Basically something like this is going on (this example uses MC.Tween)

    Code:
    nextBtn.onRelease = function(){
       oldMC.tween("_y", "-6000", 1.0);
          if (oldMC._y == -6000) {
            newMC.tween("_x", "350", 1.0);
    }
    Now obviously that isn't a working code, for one you need MC Tween installed. And second I just wrote it off the top of my head. But You can get the idea.

    The actions of the transitions are linked to the pressing of the buttons, not the end of the MC's frame.
