    wmode transparant affecting player performance

    rudgr
      Hi,

      Is it true that the wmode transparent parameter affects the performance of the flash player?

      I've got a swf file which runs slow in the IE flash player when wmode is transparent. The FF player doesn't seem to be affected by the performance issue.

          wMode transparent is notoriously unpredictable, and as it uses a more
          complex rendering algorithm it will consume more processor. smaller
          swfs (dimensionally) will be less affftected
