create a movieclip of your display and enable the cacheAsBitmap property of that movieclip. animate that movieclip and retest.
Thank you for your responce.
I found the following article on how to enable the cacheAsBitmap property of a movie clip. ( http://livedocs.adobe.com/flash/9.0/main/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Liv eDocs_Parts&file=00000867.html ). I tried following along, but apparently I do not have enough stack space. Tried debugging the movie, same error came up.
how would you suggest enabling the cacheAsBitmap property?
click insert, new symbol, tick movieclip and click ok. on that stage (of the movieclip), create your "2009". go to the timeline (main or otherwise) where you want to animate that movieclip. drag the movieclip to the stage of that timeline, tween it use actionscript to tween it and give it an instance name (say mc2009). attached to the first frame where that movieclip appears, use:
mc2009.cacheAsBitmap = true;
