          Hi,

          Are you using an external cast library or linking cast members to external files?

          For an external cast library - this is often used when you have multiple movies
          that have shared content to avoid duplicating content across movies. The external
          cast library loads with the movie and so there should be no speed differences
          between an internal cast and external one.

          For externally linked files. These may take a bit longer to load intitially. The
          files will be loaded when needed by default. If you wnat, you can preload external
          members so you have a longer wait at the beginning rather than when you get to
          that section.
          But the above are very general guidelines. It depends on the way you manage your
          fiels - eg load then in small groups or all at once, how big each external file
          is.

          Hope that helps.
