Using ExtendScript, one can set object properties by building a JS object and using that object to set any object's properties.
Besides being a convenient way of setting properties, it has a measurable effect on performance as opposed to setting each property separately (especially when there a re a lot of proerties to set).
I just wasted a lot of time trying to set properties in ActionScript. It looks to me that properties cannot be set en-mass. It looks like you need to set each one individually. Please tell me I'm wrong!
