Frames per second question

Can anyone tell me the problems with making a movie with a high fps? Say... 80 fps or more?  

I have a very simple animation (a square box with a dynamic text box in the center).   The animation has to travel the entire height and width of the screen in a sine wave pattern.  The reason for the high fps is to make the animation very smoth so the letter in my text box readable.  

All I see is my .swf file size going from about 10kb to 20kb.  Are there any other concerns I should be aware of?  FYI: This is created using Flash.MX.

thanks.

A concern would be the amount of animation taking place.  For example, if you are fading lots of jpg's in and out of each other, while doing other animations all at different alpha levels, you could set it to 99 but it would only play at 18, due to the load.

Further FPS issues:  it has been reported that different browsers play Flash at different speeds.  Mac is slower than PC.  Netscape is faster than IE.  Mozilla is faster than Netscape.

The .swf file size increasing is interesting, since you are only changing the rate.  Maybe you increased the amount of frames to accommodate more animation?

However, to answer your basic question, if it's only an animation I don't think you should have any problems with increasing the FPS.

I would guess the size has something to do with when the Flash authoring environment compiles the movie. I'm not sure why it would do that though.
