the size of your first frame is determined not only by the objects in that frame but also all items exported for actionscript and embedded fonts.
Many thanks for some help with my preloader issue. OK that is interesting about the first frame containing much more than just the visable work of the preloader movieclip. That explains why the Preloader appears to be 60kb instead of the 10kb it is in isolation in a test scene away from the website. I guess this would cause a big delay in it loading but not why it loads at 100% with no animation.
What do you suggest is the way around this? Reading other posts I am picking up other possible avenues that are a little beyond my grasp just yet.
Can the preloader script I sent be modified to just target the work in that scene that it is measuring for download only and ignore the other information?
Or having done some more reading do I need to tackle the problem in a completely different way and remove the preloader to a seperate scene and somehow get that to work prior to the targeted scene to download? Is that what is known as the moviecliploader class method? Would this still have a first frame download issue?
Any advise to point in the right direction vastly appreciated.
