Just to give you a heads up, I am just 16 and am very new to this stuff. I created an animation in after effects for a friends website and I know this might sound ridiculous but the file size is 1.6mb when in medium to low quality. When online, it is amazingly laggy to the point it is makes the site look much worse. I've seen SWF's the exact same size playing on high quality and I dont get it, please offer some advice!
EDIT: It might be because I rasterize the SWF, but it is necessary for the 3d components.
