This seems confusing. By using LoadMovie, you're only loading one image at a
time (say 24k) so there is a slight lag. But if you load the whole thing as one
MC with 10 images, that's 240k, a substantial wait. If it's going to be
sequential, couldn't one load in the background (visibility set to false) so
that while you're looking at image 1, image 2 is loading. When you click it
would actually change the visibility to true.If you click to go to image 2
before it's done, there might be a preloader sequence or something. Seems this
would be the most seamless way of doing it. Is it possible to do this with
