is there a way to cache external jpg images prior to them
being called with the loader component? download them in the
background and not when the parent movieclip is loaded? i am trying
to keep the user from having to wait either at the beginning to
load the flash mc, or during it as well.
would it work if i had the parent html document preloadimages
or would flash be looking somewhere else for them?
also, can i use a fade effect on externally loaded images?
