Flash Screensaver is a Processor Hog
Posted on 2001-08-20
Hi there. I've created a Flash file that's been turned into a screensaver with a little application called Bitbull. The screensaver is working as it should, but the client is unhappy that it is not a fullscreen image.
My problem is that the graphics are large imported jpegs that fade in and out, and also have shapes and text moving on top of them. So at fullscreen, it is unacceptably choppy.
Is there anything I can do to improve this? I need someone to shed some light on this...what affects CPU usage, etc. I've looked at some other screensavers (I can provide URLs to download if you'd like) that have reasonably smooth motion and I'd like to know how they're achieving this. Does the software you use to create the screensaver affect its performance?
Thank you very much.
