    Let me get this organized a bit:
    so you have two scenes -- and you want to link them together. Would you like to link them by an action (say, someone clicks on a button and it goes to the second scene) - or do you want scene 1 to automatically go to scene 2?

    At the end of the scene, on the final frame - load your actionscript menu (right click, actionscript). Use the beginner mode, and select goto - you can now set it up to goto and play scene 2 automatically. Essentially you would use similar code for a movie clip or a button to do the same thing.

    Why do you need a button - what's wrong with a link ?

    Buttons were originally intended for forms and stuff like that. Links built the web I suppose. "Hyper-Text" was the making of the WWW as we know it. Anyways...

    Code:
    <a href="page.htm" title="Page">Page</a>
    a - defines a link
    href - the location of the document (the URL)
    title - the title/description of the link
    Page - the only part that is visible; the text you click on to got to the page

    If you're doing it in flash, then that's a different story. You can do two separate HTML files with separate .swf files embedded in them -- or you can do 1 movie, with two scenese, and link them like I said above in flash (gotoandplay scene 2). The benefit of two files is that it may be faster to download each one separatly -- the downfall is that you may not get to do all the effects, and essentially, you're splitting your movie up -- this all depends on what you think is best for the project. Do you have it up yet?
