seek <movie | path | sound> to <number> Applies to movies, paths, sounds
For paths, the seek command moves the animation to the unit specified by <number>. <number> is relative to the playStart property, and can't be greater than playDuration.
For sounds, the seek command repositions the sound to a specified position relative to playStart. <number> is expressed in units, and can't be greater than playDuration.
For movies, the seek command repositions the sound and animation to a specified position relative to playStart. <number> is expressed in units, and can't be greater than playDuration.
If you use the seek command while the path is not animating, the object will move to the position specified by the seek command. If you then execute an animate along command, the object will begin animating from the beginning of the path, not from the seek position that you specified.
