we are developing an application where alot of the content is Macromedia Flash animation. The backgrounds of the scenes are static, but are quite complex.
The question I have is whether using large shapes with 50% alpha values in the background is going to significantly slow down the rendering, or whether the fact that some images are semi-transparant is irrelevant.
I don't know the Flash file format so I'm looking for help ere...
Rendering speed is critical to us cos the animations will be nearly full screen.
