    Maybe because you are including all of the xtras in the projector?

    thx...but...NOPE!
    i made sure on ALL occasions that i only have the Flash Asset Xtra in place!
    and ONLY in the Projector File!
    the DIR (extern file) which is added has ALL "modify/movie/xtras" removed!

    can someone else try this!!
    7 images (800x600)
    1 Flash File with small animation.
    ALL imported!!!

    i have gone back to MX for this job.. coz i get a smaller file! :(
    i would make my files availible BUT! it contains sensitive infomatiuon for
    this client... internal use only!

    i will take another look at this later... no time! its abit late in EUR land..
    and the file has gone to client as Beta

    Hi,
    maybe this helps you:
    I have about 64 MB of images, flash and music linked to my movie and
    the dir and the casts are alltogether only about 220 KB big (including
    a stub).

    If anybody is interested in your imported media he could easily
    extract it from your movie, so just link to it and you are fine.
