Can anyone tell me when the updateAfterEvent fires? If I say updateAfterEvent(mouseMove), does this event occur after every mouse move?

UpdateAfterEvent fires between frames, normally the player updates the screen after every frame.
Also you can only use it with the following actions:

onClipEvents - mouseMove, mouseDown, MouseUp, keyDown, keyUp.

Hope this helps.

It is useful when you are going to be manipulating an object more than once withing a frame based on actionscript, to give a moother movement look, and to ensure it actually goes from A > b > C rather than straight from A > C
