Scott does the movie consist entirely of frame by frame animations or
are there any tweened animations? The things that I have found to
cause slow animations are using bitmaps, gradients, and alpha fades.
I didn't notice much in the way of any of those. Have you optimized
your outlines?

It seemed to come to me on 14.4k pretty swiftly, but response time for
rollover to animation was sluggish.
