    Quantity of Movieclips limitation

    Hi!
    I make now a project where flash shows a curve according coordinates,
    that it becomes through XML. I try to make it using duplicateMovieClip and clip is one small point. Now question: is any limitation exist of the quantity of Movieclips? It's seams, that I'll have 5000 of it.
    And one more: as I understand, there is no possibility to draw a line between to points according coordinates from XML, am I right?
    Thanks.

    you can have 16000 movie clips in a flash movie. but your computer is likely to stop before you reach that point !

    In any case, is this not a case for using the drawing methods?

    I would have thought you could .curveTo() or .lineTo() each of your 5000 points rather than having a separate MC.

    It still might take a while to draw though, and I am not sure many people will see the difference between a curve with 500 points and one with 5000.
