Not much to go by here Rusty,

Do you have a sample on the web.
Are you sure, after pasting the frames into the MC, that the first few
frames where blank?
If the first few frames of an MC are blank you will only see a white dot
or(if selected) a small
crosshair to represent the MC on the MTL.

Be sure you, A: name your MC with an "instance" and B:, provide labels in
the MC for your MTL action keyframes to communicate with.

Like I said, not much to go on, but these are the basics of MC
