Advice about scenes

i’ve just read in the flash help that it is not advisable to use scenes, for many reasons.however i have a project i’m working on that has a tree structure, a branch that subdivides into more branches, and so on.i want to use a scene for every node of the the structure, and i would come out with at least 50 scenes or so. have you had any problems working with such a number of scenes???

on the other hand, they recommend using movie clips, but this would result in monstruous movie clips, maybe 40 inside one another. any problems with these?? what’s your experience in dealing with such projects???

by now it’s not intended to be in a web page, it’s just a presentation.

any experiences or suggestions???
