Tweakin out the flashmx

i have a flash site that has many symbols,movieclips, graphics, text etc.
i would say about 100 different flash objects including components.

i just noticed that some things are running slow, and usually the movements, or interfaces move smoothly, but now when i place simple efx on-release it seems to slow down what ever movie is currently playing.

is there a way that i can tweak it so i can get it performing at it’s best?

also… what are the best practices for organizing the library? or does that matter at all?

just want to get this to run smoothly.

thanks in advance.

here is a tutorial that will show you some ways to reduce file sizes

i am reviewing it now. i think this will cover it.

thanks again.
