Controlling Movie Clips 

(Click image below to download the plug-in)

1 Start a new movie [CTRL+N] .  I am going to use a 200x200 pixel movie on this example.  To modify the size of your movie, click on Movie>Modify
2 Open your button library (Libraries>Buttons)
Drag the any button on your library onto your movie (I used "Square Green" button for this tutorial).

You can use the Scale tool to resize your button.

Repeat this procedure by dragging another button onto your movie OR you can highlight the first button, hold the [CTRL] key and drag your mouse onto your movie.  This will create a similar copy of your first button.


3 Open your movie clips (Libraries>Movie Clips).  Drag the "Animated Asterisk" movie clip onto your main movie.

4 Add a new layer (Insert>Layer) and name this layer (Label).  Make "Label" your current layer.  Click on the Text Tool and add a label on each of your button (see example image below).
Your timeline should look something like this:
5 Pick the Arrow Tool .

Double-click the "Asterisk Movie Clip" to bring up its Instance Properties.  Name this instance "Asterisk" then hit OK.

6 Now, edit your movie clip by right-clicking the "Asterisk Movie Clip" and choosing "Edit".
