    What is the best AIR render mode?

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhh5

      In Flash Professional Help / Publishing AIR for Android applications (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash/using/publishing-air-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.
