when you are in zoomed-in mode, as you will probably notice, the scrolling is really slow. yes, it is a huge vector map of the world that you are moving around, but I have tried using all sorts of shapes as tests - .gif versions of the map, simpler test shapes, etc. - all with the same slow results. why is the Flash plugin's draw engine so damn slow? we're only talking about an object that has a 1000 vectors or so. that should be nothing for any modern day computer.
does anyone know any good techniques for speeding up scrolls like this? Does it matter how the actionscript is written? Right now I have a looping movie clip executing a script on each frame to change the x/y properties of the map accordingly. I tried changing the fps of the movie but it doesn't help anything.
