    Compiling symbols as library

    Statikbuzz Level 1
      I would like to compile an swf/library with multiple MovieClips/Sprites that I could then use from another swf by just passing references.

      It seems that this is not possible with Flash 8 because you cannot reinstantiate movieclips in other .swfs to different .swf by just passing instance names.

      Reason for this is that when you have hundreds of small dynamically loaded symbols,. http request amount rises too high and it would be easier to just fetch one large .swf dynamically and then instantiate copies of those symbols elsewhere in application.

      Is this possible with Flex 2? Basically this is about changing the parent of duplicated movieclip to some other than the original, i think?
