Any flash gurus here ?
show user profile  killerbee2
Has been a while since I got into flash and trying to get some interactive clips done for use in Arkaos VJ software. So far I can link the Arkaos frequency variables to scaling/position/rotation values but now I want to link that variable to a specific frame of a movie clip.

So basically what I want is the variable equals the framenumber (math.round) of the movieclip (output from Arkaos is value from 0-100, movieclip contains 100 frames).

Anyone pointers on how to do this ? (ActionScrit 2.0 preferred)

var frame = myClip.currentFrame;

shouldn't need math.round as the currentFrame always returns an integer.

If your clip doesn't have a specific instance name, try this.currentFrame instead

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.
