Loading times web view / html5 animations / edge hype

Jan 6, 2012 8:09 AM

Hi,

 

I have been working with iPad publishing software quite a while now and have experienced Woodwing as well as DPS. I have come across an issue  with DPS which I can't find a solution for. When creating web view content, I mean either normal websites or Html5 animations the loading times with DPS are to long and there is the issue of the spinning loading.gif.

 

Is there some way to speed up the loading time for everything which is loaded within the web view window? How would I for example speed up the time to load animations from Edge or from Hype?

 

From my point of view this is a crucial thing to be solved.

 

Also I know from working with Woodwing that they solved that issue and things regarding the loading time of web content/animations are running a lot smoother. ( and no I can't  just use Woodwing I need to solve this with DPS )

 

Solutions welcome and info on when stuff like this will be solved as well.

 

Thank you,

 

Alex

    I'm having the same troubles in edge. I'd prefer if it didn;t have the loading gif too.

    I agree that this is a real issue.

     

    I asked an Adobe rep about this in person several weeks ago -- somewhat vaguely. He suggested that if the web view/html stack uses javascript, that we should be careful to use the minimum amount of libraries. (They load fresh each time?)

     

    I'm not sure that that's actually true, the project I was doing with html stacks was done by then and I didn't test the theory. But my sense was that the time lag was for rendering the page or view, not loading js libraries. Maybe someone from Adobe can explain what is actually happening during the "spinner time."

    The HTML loading time is really bad right now.

    And it crashes the viewer often when loading multiple Edge animations with all that jQuery libraries each time.

     

    The other problem is the "fade in" time after the page laded taking away a few milliseconds, too.

     

    In the videos about Liquid Layout and the new way of adding Edge Animations (somewhat like dropping them into indesign), the animation loaded instantly. Don't know how they did that.

    But there might be a better experience in a future version of DPS/InDesign

    Making HTML load more quickly is planned for the near future. It should happen in one of the next few releases.

    I've specifically added this request to our work items for an upcoming release. I spoke with the engineers last week and I'm hopeful there's a targeted change we can make to improve this. The big challenge on our end is verifying we don't break existing publications when we improve this.

    Neil, can you even say how long it takes? ... We are currently working on a magazine app for an international car manufacturers and hope that we can publish it without loading time.

    Thanks for your support!

    I can't, sorry Until the engineering team costs the work out and we properly understand the validation impact I can't say where it'll fall in our release cycles. I trying to make it happen though!

    Neil, Bob,

     

    How's the Engineering team doing on this matter?

     

    We're about to launch an App. Would LOVE to get rid of the loading!

     

    Cheers

    In v20 we've removed the 1+ second delay before the content of the web overlay would start loading. Woot! There is still a brief fade-in, but at least the big delay is removed.

    Thanks, Neil.

     

     

     

    But you don’t get nominated for a Nobel unless nothing that works now breaks.

    You get nothing until we’re sure nothing else is broken. This is non-negotiable.

     

     

     

    Will you be a pepcon in a couple of weeks?

    What's pepcon? (Hint: since I don't know, the answer is no, I'm not going to be there).

     

    Nate, just enjoy the new functionality. Your happy smile and awesome publications will be payment enough
