    is it easier/better to put everything in one movie ? or split it up?

    i have a photographers site. i originally made one index.swf that loaded in 3 external swf's to get this:

    www.tinyphotoshop.com/temp/

    i can't figure out how to load the external three so the movie starts once everything is loaded. is it better to just make one large file and load the whole thing?

    Hi,

    In your case it would be better to load separate swfs for each section...this will minimize download times. Have preloaders for each loaded swf, so that folks know a movie is loading.

    so i put a simple preloader in each swf?

    i tried to put them all in one swf and it took forever to load.

    is there an example of what you are saying anywhere i can see/download?
