Hi Jason,

> John - can you explain when/why you should use scenes (v. layers)?
There is no scenes verses layers they are completely different.

Scenes divide the timeline into smaller portions and are used in the
authoring environment only (not in the swf file) and are a convenience
to the author to reduce long timelines into scenes of more manageable
sizes. In Flash 2 it also makes it easier when using goto frame
references. There is no cost to add scenes except if there are objects
that are in the previous frame that continue into the next scene, then
there are costs for placing those items an additional time.

Layers divide the image (and other objects) into divisions (called
layers) that sit one on top of the other. Higher layers (towards the top
of the page) sit above lower layers. Lower layers are exposed in
transparent areas of upper layers.
