    Animation not smooth

    Hi, i've implemented upwards scrolling news by loop animation:

    there are 10 text items one beneath the other and a simple animation of the list going upwards, to make it look as if it loops all the time this list of items repeats the first couple items, so: list of 1,2,3...10,1,2,3 text lines.

    the animation of going upwards goes from frame 1 to frame 100, 2 key frames: at frame 1 the list is in x=0 and y=0, and in key frame 100: x = 0 and y 500.

    The problem is that the animation is not smooth - it looks as if it scrolls up by jumping small "jumps".. i m using MX (not 2004).

    Thanks in advance,
    Maya Malimovka.

    Flash tweens are very processor intensive. Even on a fairly quick processor with lot's of RAM, more than a single tween running at once will show a marked decrease in smoothness. It get's a lot worse on older machines. I don't think there is any fix. You can try and change the layout so the separate items 'jump' into view, stay a few seconds, then get replaced by the next item jumping in. The idea is to use short, quick tweens instead of long, slow ones. Less drain on the processor.
