timer and mouse event interaction
I would like a 'MouseOver' event to trigger a timer...
then once the designated time is up the code will instruct to 'GotoAndPlay' the 2nd part of the MC. (so the MC will play from a designated frame - no probs there.)
I know almost nothing about timer events and believe this is probably extremely easy to do; it's just that I don't know the code required.
I also know that a simple, but long way round, way of doing it would be to simply add a set of 'still' frames amounting to a certain amount of time. I am very curious about using timers though.
Any help will be most appreciated,

You can setup some simple MouseEvent functions inside the MovieClip like;
var secondsToPause:Number = 2;
var timer = new Timer(secondsToPause * 1000, 1);
I've attached an example to show you how to build the MovieClips, hope this helps!
