    Most efficient way to import images in flash...

    Hi
    Just wondering what's the most efficient way (in terms of file size) to import images in flash... Would you just "save for web" in photoshop and then import?

    yep exactly. Most seem to believe that save for web as png is the best as sometimes jpg will get jagged although i've never run in to that.

    cool... I seem to have issues in file sizes when I create tweens (mostly from alpha 0% to alpha 100% over like 20 frames)...that's when the size doubles...

    Isn't there some AS to do that effect?

    yeah you could do that with as, but technically you shouldn't see much of any size increase from an alpha/tween/resize, that's all just math. if you want to test against an AS version it would look something like this:

    PHP Code:
    mcInstanceName._alpha 0;
    this.onEnterFrame = function(){
    mcInstanceName._alpha += 5;
    if(
    mcInstanceName._alpha >= 100){
    delete onEnterFrame;
    }

    So the image would be in the library? or in the main timeline?

    the image would be on the stage inside a movieClip named mcInstanceName (using the example posted above)
