No permission otherwise it would be written in the INFO frame inside that file for sure.
If you want to mail me - DO NOT LAUGH AT MY ADDRESS
meant "no permission REQUIRED..."
I have a 14 pages book here.
I've have another 26 pages book, with high res photo & animation,
everything run smooth although i open multiple book at once.
The component from the site you mentioned, the book seen to be loaded very fast but actually it load pages separately. Not all pages are ready when the book looked like ready.
I've developed the flipping book component based on PageFlip v2 source by http://www.iparigrafika.hu & I have my reason, I've tested its performance.
I dont understand your mean when you say "more than 12 pages" & "performance gets really bad"? Do you mean the speed of loading the book? Machine CPU usage? Memory usage? Based on getTimer before & after the instance? Please specify.
Any comments are welcome.
First of all, I said: I saw some comments... meaning some people used the open source version and encountered performance problems when adding more than 12 pages. This could point to a depth issue in combination with alpha settings of items on the pages or the standard items like the page shadows. And a combination of the book with other items in the movie could also influence the performance. By performance I mean things getting slow, turning the pages, animations in the loaded pages getting slow.
And when it comes to loading: sure, you might get away with loading all pages in a relatively small booklet but when you would use a bigger size movie (800x600) with say 64 pages, it's better to load on demand - in my opinion I must add.
Thanks LuigiL & I observe your opinion as a factor to be considered for the next version of my component. May be by giving options to user to choose between load pages from library or load on demand.
