I am having a problem where I need to set a movie clip on a different
frame in the movie to _visible=false before I actually go to that
frame. When I try to do this it still is visible when I jump to that
frame and Flash even sees the property as being undefined.

anyone have advice? I thought maybe a preloader would work if i had
all the instances loaded into memory, but i'm not really sure what to
do.
