incorporating an avi movie inside a loop

incorporating an avi movie inside a loop

Hi there:
I am trying to run an avi file automatically within a director movie. However, the avi will only play if I Hold on the frame containing that avi. If I hold on the frame then the rest of the Director movie will not run. And I require no user intervention!
So how can I write an avi into a director movie that will play in full, stop, then  initiate the rest of the Director movie ?

Thanks in anticipation!

RE: incorporating an avi movie inside a loop

I'm not sure if I understood you correctly but if you want to hold the frame until the video is finished, you can do:

-- frame script
on exitFrame me
  if sprite(1).movieTime < sprite(1).member.duration then
    go the frame
  end if
end exitFrame
