ActionScript animation efficincy (AS2.0)

Last Modified: 2013-11-11
Hi, I currently have an animation using a .prototype function on a MovieClip (cannot use .as)

I'm using it as I find it more versatile than to use say, the tween class. As it sometimes gets called halfway through an animation. The problem I am having is it is causing a lot of processor lag to the rest of my animation while it is playing.

What is the most efficient way to animate objects dynamically?

(Note that I CANNOT use: .as files or any external libaries, apart from default ones such as the tween class)

Any help/ideas appreciated.
