    I'm interseted in what frame per second rate most flash pros feel comfortable with. Is 12 fps still best for web?

    Also, is there some kind of software to slow down a processor to test performance on other machines. I'm on a MP-G4, but would love to test at the speed of a Pentium 2 or Celeron or whatever.

    Thanks, Bill

    FPS:
    Not been a pro, but sure to read this some threads ago, 20 FPS should be your answer and my choice.

    Test software:
    Sorry. Not a clue!
    But shouldn´t be a grate difference because of the streaming capabilities of Flash (.swf) files.

    I think that the graphics cards installed do the real difference. Don´t they?

    video card vs. processor?

    Is that true that the graphics cards and not the processor determine how smooth playback is? If you have a lot of alpha tweens and or bitmap fades I thought the processor is where the slow down occurs.

    I know I need to buy a windows machine to test on, and I guess a cheap, slow one, or even a used one would be good. I know almost nothing about them. Any suggestions as to a good test machine?

    Thanks, Bill

    Also you have to consider that with Mac version of Flash player plugin, movies run slower than with the Win Flash player. And this IS a fact that Macromedia guys yet don't fix.

    I suggest any Pentium with Win 2000. Just forget about Win Mi, Mx, etc. A lot of friends bought AMD or Celeron processor and have some compatibilities problems with some Macromedia last versions softwares.

    I use 12 for user interaction, 20 for animation.

    But I wouldn't necessarily call myself a pro...
