Any straight line can be described as this simple equation: y = ax + b If you have the starting point (x1, y1) and the end point (x2, y2), it's easy to work out two constants a and b. The beauty of TweenLite is you can tween any property of any object (thanks Jack!). In this case you will

If you want your contentMC class to be able to call methods on your myClass then you should probably pass the myClass instance to the contentMC. Basically, add a parameter to contentMC's constructor of type myClass, and pass a reference to 'this' when you create it. Something like this: public

Looks to me your Class MyClass should be the Document class. If you set it as Document class, you can attach your MovieClip like this, because the root timeline is MyClass itself: var contentMCs:MovieClip = new ContentMC(); addChild(contentMCs); Then from your MovieClip, you can call MyClass

I don't think you can rely on metaData being called just once, but it is easy enough to add logic to handle the metadata once only. The nature of the metadata depends on how (and with what tool) the flv was encoded. So the answer to your question of predictability is Yes only if you have strict
