thanks. I tried to follow the instructions, but the test scene with
these actions caused my file to go into an infinite loop starting with
the first frame in the scene rather than with the frame of the movie clip.

I am not sure that the BeginLoop label is being understood, although I
have labeled the first frame in which the movie clip appears as
BeginLoop. It seems to be looping the entire scene, and it does not
follow through to the last Go to Next frame and End.

Each of my movie clip frames are key frames with an "a" above the blue
dot... except for the last frame which is an empty key frame...
