Flash Preloader??

I have 50 flash pages linked together, the further i go into the pages the slower it gets going from page to page. Also in each page it causes the rollovers to slow up in appearing. Is there some preloader i can use and how do I use it?

the problem does not sound like it has to do with needing a preloader...

if your movies were pausing at random spots or stopping completely, then that means you need a preloader...  the problem you are discribing is one of file optimization.  

your computer's processor is running as fast as it can but it is not fast enough to keep up with your animations and sound...  You should test your files out on different computers(faster and slower processors) and if there is any improvements, then optimization if your next step...

these steps should help:

- You need to make sure that all of your images are optimized as best as possible

- cut down on any alpha or bitmap tweening

- use mp3 files instead of wav (Flash MX only)

- don't start out sounds in the same frames as large animations and tweens

- DO NOT use large bitmap(gif & jpg) images in tweens or even at all

- if the graphics can be vector, then use vector

FYI...  vector graphics use math, which a cpu can process hundreds of times faster, then your graphics card can display animations...  Pixar uses hundreds of computers to render animations, and you are only using one :)


let me know if this helps at all...  if not, then provide some more details...

Rascalpants,
I havent put in my animations/graphics yet.
the filesize of each template/page is no bigger than 10k.
could i possibly preload say the first 10 pages and when i get to page 9 preload the next 10? or something to that effect.

yes you can, but can you expand on exactly what is happening when you run the movie?

if you have no animations or graphics yet, how are you having problems?


explain if you can...
