Is there a way to do a 'Lite' save for Flash CC so it doesn't take so long to save?

Bonjour mes amis



I'm doing a hand-drawn (Wacom), black and white, traditional style animation. Nothing fancy at all is being used. No symbols. No tweening. Just black brush strokes on a plain white stage. Lots of keyframes (500+ drawings), across multiple layers.



In earlier version of Flash (CS3 and CS4) this type of scene would save pretty quickly. .


In Flash CC, this type of scene seems to take much, much longer to save. Approaching a minute sometimes. I assume this is because many more variables are being saved, to account for the increased feature set of CC over SC3 and CS4



Can I force Flash CC to strip out the redundant data that I'm not using and in effect have a streamlined 'Lite' save?



Merci beaucoup for any help or suggestions.


NOTE - this applies to saving locally. not across a network or into the cloud.

    you can disable warnings and strict mode (file>publish settings>as3 advanced settings) to see a significant decrease in publish time.


    also check if permit debugging is unticked and omit trace statements is ticked.

    Unfortunately there isn't any such thing like a 'lite' save. You may want to try out Saving as XFL instead of fla which might help you save a little time.
