Must content files be mirrored in the project folder?

When I create a composer project file it creates the .smgproj file and a sub-folder of the same name. If my project file contains buttons that link to any external files like .pdfs or .jpegs in the vault, those files are copied into that sub-folder. This seems like a wasteful approach. Now I have two copies of said .pdfs in my vault and if I have other projects that link to the same .pdfs I would have even more copies. Is there any way to avoid this?

 

I'm also experiencing really slow performance in the Composer player when trying to rotate an assembly. The computer is a brand new laptop with a 2.8Ghz Xeon processor 32GB of Ram and a Quadro M1000M. The assembly doesn't have any real textures (just flat colors), I've turned off graphical bells and whistles (ambient occlusion, anti-aliasing, highlighting etc.) and done everything I can think of to make it more responsive but it still seems way slower than it should. Any ideas or something I could be missing? Once I middle mouse click on the assembly there is a 3-5 second pause before I can rotate anything. Once it starts rotating it is actually responsive and smooth but sometimes it will not even respond after 3-5 seconds and just goes grey for a few seconds. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
