What sort of file size limitations are there on Catalyst? Right now I'm working with creating an interactive map that I made in Illustrator. Originally it was a pretty complex map (all vector) and I was having issues with Catalyst shutting down, etc. I've simplified the map a lot and Catalyst supports it OK but sometimes when I publish to swf and try to click on buttons that zoom in/out of the map, they only work some of the time. Is this due to some kind of memory restriction or something because the action is too complex?
It sounds like you should consider converting some of your vectors into Optimized Vector Graphics. There is a post on the FlashCats blog that explains how, and covers other tips on optimizing:
Here is a short technote covering size restrictions on imported art:
