    Banner speed different from PC to Mac...Help

    Hi
    I made a simple banner is flash that is a loop of images moving from right to left. I had a question as to why when I look at the flash on a PC the speed is fast, but when I look at the flash on a Mac the speed is lot slower. The flash is set to about 90 fps for around 4400 seconds. Any ideas?

    this probably isn't a mac/pc issue, but rather relates to how robust the computer is, 90fps is super fast and will definitely be asking alot to anything but new computers so it's probably just bagging out the mac, they don't perform well in general (joking! haha don't wanna start a flame war....... although macs are n00b cubes... o wait i wish i could delete that but it's too true i mean too late)

    So do you think if I bring down the fps to 20 or 30 it will run better on the Mac?

    For the same banners I have them all end at frame 4230 (at 31fps). The banners are all different lengths, so the shorter ones move faster than the longer ones. I tried adding extra frames to the shorter banners and less frames to the longer ones, but it doesn't seem to be exact from banner to banner. Does anyone know if there is an action script for speed so the banners move at exactly the same speeds regardless of length?
