I'm doing some hand drawn animation in Flash 5.5 and now my program is going so slow, it's taking 3-5 seconds for the program to realize that I've scrubbed through frames. There's no virus scanner running in the background, my program is up to date and I wouldn't consider the program "full," so to speak. There's a little less than five seconds of animation on doubles on the timeline.
(Also please note that I don't know much about Flash as a program. I'm essentially doing frame-by-frame animation on a computer and that's it. Nothing fancy in this project.)
Any help would be appreciated. : )
create a new directory and save your fla (with a new name) in that directory. restart your computer and then open that new fla in flash cs 5.5 and see if it performs better.
That worked! Thank you. : )
