Jerky framerate in playback?

I have a graphic that is moving as it should but is very jerky and the frame rate is wildly changing while it is playing.  Could it be in part, or wholly, the fault of the graphic being to large?  The graphic has lots of sparkles which i created one by one to simulate sequins.

The answer i'm afraid is yes... There is simply too much going on, on stage at once...

I found a great article on this and how to optimise your flash movies so they run smoother and faster.

Here is a link.

Hope you find this as useful as i did !

useful yes, but i have then designed a graphic that will not ever play until the software/systems catch up to its particular needs.  creativity run wild without regard to the limits of the software, ho hum...take your points grinch!:o) edmond
Don't worry Ed,
Moore's Law dictates that every two years computers double in speed...  So in two years time... who knows !!!

Or was Moore's Law about the density of silicon integrated circuits ?  who knows, either way, it's good news for your creative expertise !!!


By the way, I've had exactly the same problem as you recently, and my solution was to split the site into a "hi-fi" and "lo-fi" version...

The lo-fi will be simple html, no plug-ins required, and the Hi-fi will be my flash movie that only runs on machines of over 600Mhz !!!  hahahah
