Don't know. why don't you do a test. Put each in a movie clip and you'll
need at least 20 copies. 100 would be better. Then time the 2 versions.

Masking is indeed more processor intensive but not because it takes 2
Layers are always removed when the swf file is exported and generally
cost no bytes or processor time.
