Hour 6. Controlling Movie Clips > Telling Movie Clips What to Do

Telling Movie Clips What to Do

The first thing that you need to do to control a movie clip is to name it. Naming movie clips in Flash is confusing because all movie clips have two names: the name of the original movie clip in the Library, and the name of the movie clip instance in the work area. The reason for the two names is that you can have more than one instance of the same movie clip on the screen at the same time.
