    HI, is there any way of compressing a swf file once you have made it, because on of mine is 135 kb big but takes 2 long to load, is there anyway of halfing it.
    Thanks for you time

    Rather not. .swf files are compresed by itself. If you work with 3dfa you can easily change the compression depth of sounds and graphics.
    I think it is not bad idea to take a closer look at imported elements (graphisc, sounds). And befor import - optimize it (for example: decrease # of colors in gifs)

    In general: compresing compresed files usually produce bigger ones.

    This would be easier if I could see your file.

    Things that add size.
    1. Shadows.
    2. Text effects.
    3. large images.

    To test what is creating your size problem
    save your movie with a new name with different elements and effects deleted.

    Once you identify the problem -- resolve it.
