when working with many MC's in a single movie...lets say i have 3 frames in one layer...and each layer has an MC....i use tell targets right?!?!

and when working with multiple movies...lets say i have 3 different movies each containing one MC.... do i use the actionscript "loadmovie" in where i link through different types of levels?!?!? and how do i actually make these 3 movies connect .....from the 1st movie through the 3rd movie

If you have 3 different .swf files you will need to load them all up into different levels (or targets, but start with levels) of another clip.
So say you have slip1.swf, and clip2.swf. You create a flash movie and put these commands in it:

loadMovieNum ("clip1.swf", 1);
loadMovieNum ("clip2.swf", 2);

This will load each of the clips into a higher level.
Then if you want to tell clip2.swf to play you would use:

_level2.play();

or to tell clip1.swf to stop you would use

_level1.stop();

Get it?
