sorry this is such a nooby question, but i don’t know where else to turn- i just downloaded the flash CS3 free trial, and as directed in all the tutorials i’ve read, i’ll create a new movie clip (i draw a random smudge with the brush tool, hit F, and convert it), then i’ll go to properties and change it’s instance name, and then i’ll right click on the movie clip and select “actions”… and it says “current object cannot have actions applied to it”… i’ve tried remaking the damn thing 20 times, i’ve remade the whole flash file a few times, i’ve tried clicking on it on the screen and in the library and i’ll have it selected, and i don’t know what the hell is going on… can anyone help me?? TIA

onClipEvents and actions cant be applied to objects in ActionScript 3. If you want to do so, change the publish settings for the movie to ActionScript 2.
