Using Flash, QuickTime and LiveStage Professional you can have buttons 
and frame loaded events within the Flash trigger DebugStr messages.  
These debugStr messages can be captured from within Revolution using:

on QTDebugStr string
   your code here
end QTDebugStr

If you need to use Flash within Revolution and have access to LiveStage 
Professional I could send you some examples.

Being able to use Flash animations natively in Revolution would be very 
nice.  Using it within QuickTime is a suitable workaround for now.
