You can make separate movie clips in which the photos get larger. Give them
each a frame where there is no photo and there is a stop frame. Put these
movie clips inside the menu movie clip and use TellTarget to make them play
or to park them (that is, to move them to the blank, stopped frame). I know
you do not want the larger movie clip to return to frame 1. You may have to
give it a frame where it is still opened up (not rescrolled) but where the
invisible button does not appear, so that users can click on another item.
The basic idea here is that when you want an animation to be independent of
the timeline where it is placed, you put it in a movie clip so it can run
independently using TellTarget.
