These swf files can get to be a tad big slowing down the loading time by a great deal. I was wondering if there is anyway to have a parent swf with all the information and then have the individual pages or states load when you click them (instead of all in the beginning)?
In Catalyst only this isn't possible. Would be a great feature though!
you could however realize by taking another approach/workflow. If you create business logic in Flash Builder that acts as a container for your components. For smaller components this wouldn't come in handy but for a larger application you could load the first state quickly, and when the user is interacting load your other components.
- Create different components in Catalyst & Export them,
- Create Flash Builder project were you can preload the assets with the Loader Class when you need them.
