    How to reduce memory usage when loading bitmaps from the library?

    alikim3

      When I use BitmapData.loadBitmap() to load an image from the library and then attachBitmap() to add it to a MovieClip it takes a lot more memory as opposed to just having the same image inside a MovieClip statically in a frame on it's timeline.

       

      The function dispose() not only clears the BitmapData object but also destroys the previously attached bitmap inside the MovieClip, so it can not be used to free any memory.

       

      Is it how it is supposed to be or is there any other way to dynamically attach bitmaps with memory usage comparable to just having them on stage?
