Hi Sean,

You could put whatever fade-in transitions you want to
achieve in the beginning of the movie clip itself. For
example, you could tween from a 0% Alpha transparency
to a 100% Alpha transparency over the first 20 or so
frames. One word of caution though, large Alpha
transparencies can appear "jerky" on slower machines
(it's a CPU, not memory issue).

I haven't tried this part, but I believe you can use
the same technique at the end of your MC. Remember to
put a stop action in the MC so that the content is
displayed. When the user hits "home" or whatever
button will get them to the main time line, the MC
will continue to play, showing the fade-out. You will
need an action in the last frame to send them back to
the main time line, though.
