    Physics

    Actionscript

    You could make a little actionscript that ran in a loop and each time upped the size by like 2% until it made it the right size. That way you'd get a smooth increase in size without the jerkiness of...

    Individual SWFs

    I would save them as individual swfs and then make sure they're preloaded before they can be called by your base swf. I also agree with the previous post that if you're going to do this more often...
