LoadTime

We recently aquired Flash 4, and have been looking for the best way to decrease load times.  It seems if I have a movie that is 100k it actually takes twice as long to load into a browser than a 100k web page would.  

I am thinking that I am missing something simple in the publishing of my movie, but I can not figure out what, so any suggestions anyone may have would be much appreciated!

Thanks

1. Don't use imported graphics
2. Try to design and create images from the built-in features
3. Make use of symbols (duplicate instances instead of making new graphics, movie clips, or buttons)
4. Decrease the JPEG quality to relatively accepted quality

There are lots of good tips on optimization of your movie on

http://www.macromedia.com/help

in the search text box give the following input :

loading,time,speed, optimization

the comma's must be included. Now you'll find lots of info on this.

Hope this helps.

In addition to optimizing for size, it is good practice to include a preloader to give the viewer some animation/incentive to stick around for the full experience.
