Being more of a coder, I'm not too keen on all the fancy art tricks. I've got a tree symbol on the stage, and I've duplicated it to make a forest of trees. The forest isn't too large, maybe 75-100 trees, but it's making flash a little laggy, both in interactivity and when saving.
Is there a trick to prevent this? Since this is only one forest (and I am a long way from the last forest I create), I fear flash will become unusable in the future. I could break down the symbols, but I want the ability to edit them. Maybe this is just too much to ask? Thanks in advance.
