I just imported a graphic from illustrator which i have put inside a movieclip, i need the movieclip to do a zoom, so I feel keeping it in a vector format is better.

The illustrator has filled up my library with thousands+ of symbols now, and stuff is getting a bit jerky. Should I break apart these symbols within the movieclip to just flat graphics - is that going to give me any increase in performance, or will it do ... nothing??
