I am moving an image around the stage, and when it moves
quickly, it becomes distorted and displays what I can only refer to
as "banding". The image appear to be misaligned for some of the
frames that it is moving. I have tried a number of the usual fixes,
increasing the framerate, using a less complex image, etc. Nothing
seems to work. Any ideas? I feel like I have seen a lot of flash +
director movies that have fast motion, slick movement, etc and not
appear as what I end up with. Is this something that relates to a
screen refresh rate? Thanks for any ideas...
Sounds like good old vertical sync / tearing. This is really
not a fixable
issue. You can try slowing down the movement a little...
Someone, a while
ago, worked on creating an xtra that would honor the vertical
interval, but it never really worked properly I don't
believe. You can read
all kinds of prior posts about this by searching google
macromedia.director.* for 'vertical sync'
