Try to avoid using scenes. If you do use them, use unique labels to
identify the frames where you want the playback to go.

To let another timeline tell the main timeline playback to go somewhere,
you must use tellTarget. It will look something like this:

On (Release)
Tell Target (target: /)
Go to and Play (frame label: grand finale)
End Tell Target
End On
