Default Controlling a MovieClip timeline with another MovieClip

Here is what I'm trying to create but having real difficulty with it, if anyone can help I would really appreciated.

I'm trying to sync 2 movieClip together by having one movieClip behave like a button that rotate when drag. When that button is rotating and dragging, it sync with another movieClip timeline.

Basically, I have a movieClip with 5 different images having a fading tween animations call "main_mc". I'm trying to control main_mc timeline with another movieClip name "drag_mc".

Drag_mc movieClip needs to function like a button that when you press and drag, it can be rotate clockwise or counterclockwise, but while you're dragging it, it controls "main_mc" movieClip timeline.

So if I drag clockwise, the main_mc timeline will go forward, if it's counterclockwise, it will go backward. But basically, the rotation of the drag_mc have to sync with main_mc timeline.

Is it possible?

Sorry for the explanation, it's the best I can describe it. Thank you.

Did you ever figure this out? I'm trying to do a similar thing and can't figure it out. Thanks!

How far did you get? Were you able to make a MovieClip that rotates when you drag? Can you possibly upload your file?

It's a very old thread so I doubt the OP will return, but what problems are you guys having with the dragging and rotating? I'm not quite sure which part you are finding difficult.

Hey shinki,

It sounded like an interesting idea, and I might be inclined to help out, but right now I don't really want to have to create it from scratch. Plus I didn't notice the age of the thread, so thanks.
