PlayStart Property


set the playStart of <movie | path | sound>
to <integer> Applies to movies, paths, sounds


The playStart property determines the position in the movie, path, or sound at which playback begins. <integer> is measured in units, and can be any number from 0 through the duration. For movies and sounds, if playback has begun, resetting the playStart does not affect the current playback; it will be effective at the next playback. For paths, you cannot reset playStart while animating. You can use the playStart property, together with the playDuration property, to play a specific segment of the movie, sound, or animation. For example, if a movie's duration is 100, and you set its playStart to 20 and its playDuration to 55, the movie's playback will end at 75.
