Unless you have a fast RAID it is very unlikely your drive can cope with the 20Mb+ per second that your uncompressed PAL/NTSC file uses.
I was just wondering if there were any experts of Flash out there who may
have more ideas on how to minimize. if not eliminate, choppy playback on
slower systems of a Flash movie. I have worked with limiting pictures used
and reduced or stopped their movement on the stage. I have also experimented
with different formats GIF, JPG, PNG all to no avail. In some cases the JPGs
were only 3.2k in size. At any rate the problem still persists - i cant keep
removing pictures (background or not) and any animation is slight at best
really - mostly stationary after first 10 frames of each page within the
movie because each is assigned a "stop" action to allow people to read whats
there before clicking to the next. I see the www.balthaser.com website and
they use a lot of animation and still graphics but the movie isnt choppy
even on slower systems. Mine running as an EXE right from the HD is choppy
unless of course you're running a 400Mhz + system. I am lost on this one
still - any help is so much appreciated.
