    I think that's your best bet. Flash isn't really designed for dealing with all that sort of stuff - it's supposed to read from elsewhere and communicate with other technologies to store and retrieve...

    Yup, what happinessSam said would be the best idea. It's a slightly more advanced topic, if you ask me, but it's worth it. There's another trade off, though - memory usage - all the BitmapData...

    miraclemaker, this is what I was thinking of, also, but I've kind of lost hope in the whole security issues with Flash. I thought about running a Flash app accessible only via socket server (or just...

    The 'normal drawings' you're talking about - in the form of vector graphics - are handled by Flash in real time. The larger they are and more complex they are, the slower they will run. Lots of...

    Yeah, ilive is right - in the properties panel of a Graphic or MovieClip, you can alter the blendMode property. This can also be done with ActionScript:

    Is "allowscale" a recognised argument for the fscommand function? How about trying "scaleMode"? Alternatively, you could try:
