is there a way of seeing the last frame of an inserted movie clip within the timeline?
i have a movie clip that changes size and the last frame is smaller than the first and i want to play off of it, but i have no idea of how small it is, to match it.
thnak you.

you can (temporarily) copy that last frame and paste it into a (temporary) layer on the working timeline.  when you no longer need it, you can delete or hide that layer.

 

or, instead of movieclip, you can use a graphic symbol (unless you need to reference the symbol with code).  its frames are displayed in the authoring environment on its ancestor (ie, parent, grandparent etc) timelines.

 

or you can temporarily convert to a graphic symbol, make your edits and then convert back to a movieclip and have the best of both (timeline edits and code) graphic symbols and movieclips.

 

and there are probably more ways to work around other situations.
