If you want to multiply First and Other inside of the Clip movie clip, try:

Set Variable: "result" = other * /:first

If you wnat to multiply them while on the main timeline, try:

Set Variable: "result" = /clip:other * first

Subject: FLASH: Simple variable question.




Hi all...

Quick variable question I need a hand with.

I have a main timeline in which frame 1 sets the value of the variable named
"First" to 1.87.

I have a movie clip named "Clip" which contains the variable named "Other"
with
a value of 13.

What I want to do is place the movie clip "Clip" in the main timeline and
have
the variables "First" and "Other" multiplied together. (I need to use the
value
of the variable "First" in other movie clips... that is why I placed it in
the
first frame of the main timeline.

I have no problem with the MC finding the variable "Other," but it refuses
to
see the variable "First." I think it may be a syntax thing, or I am using
the
wrong approach.

I hope a few of you were able to follow this and can offer some help.

Thanks!

J
