What is the best AIR render mode?

May 16, 2012 10:47 PM

In Flash Professional Help / Publishing AIR for Android applications ( .html) I found the following:



Render mode


Allows you to specify which method the AIR runtime uses to render graphic content. The options include:


    Auto - automatically detect and use the fastest rendering method available on the host device.


    CPU - Use the CPU.


    GPU - Use the GPU. If no GPU is available, the CPU is used.


    Direct - Render using Stage3D. This is the fastest available rendering method.



If the Auto mode automatically selects the fastest rendering method, what is the point of the 3 other options?


My application has some minor 2D animations, but very smooth drag-and-drop performance is important. What rendering mode would you recommend?




Thank you.
