    This is a bad idea, because the frame rate is going down too much.
    Create all your textures used as overlays on beginSprite(me)

    Necro's right. When using a SWF file to create animated textures, the
    framerate is halved.

    E.g a project running at 35 fps drops down to 18 fps... not really what you
    want.

    So far, you cannot see it because when you create your overlays from the SWF,
    it is only the image of the SWF that is used. If you move the SWF playhead
    using Lingo and update the overlay texture on enterFrame, you will see the
    framerate will be much decreased.

    Cheers,
    Karl.
