AnimationEngine pending messages

Actually, I did see the note in the dictionary and tried that. But I think since I was using AE to generate effects using image 1 that each card was somehow newly stacking commands for image 1 of each card. When I changed it to the name of image 1 then they no longer stacked for each card. Weird. So in the end I avoided having to cancel the pending messages. Still don't know exactly what was happening and how but I'm good now.

Thanks

Even in the IDE with the pending messages/message box open I can only delete one line of the pending messages and then a new message keeps coming after a bit. Is there a way to absolutely stop ALL of them that I am missing?
