Not trying to be mean but this is the exact reason why many of us stay away from Mac
while working in flash. Regardless what people say, bottom line is never work as good
on Mac as it does on windows. It was the case ever since flash was made till this very day.

what is the content of your animation? Is the SWF published file play ok?
Basically two jpg MC's. Nope, the published file works fine - Just when I am editing it within flash and viewing it in the flash player. Bugs the crap out of me.
Yeah, I am thinking a bout loading Windows onto this Mac... I've had nothing but problems since I got it.
But still I am sure there are PLENTY of people that use flash and a mac... looking to hear what they have to say.
Hmmm... just noticed when I shrink the % down to like 60% she runs smooth.
I guess it is a fairly large document and I am on a 30inch monitor... That must have something to do with it?
Yes - understand that flash is dynamic and renders on the fly in the flash player - if you make your
movie too processor intensive, it will chug - flash is not like pre-rendered video at a fixed frame
Compounded by the fact you are on a Mac (macs, as urami mentioned, play a lot slower than PCs) is
making it worse. I hate when i animate something and get it perfect - put it online, and then i see
it played back on a mac at 1/2 the speed - bums me out all the time.
I'm curious to find out if flash running in windows on a mac actually works better.

Indeed. In theory it should, as it's the Mac version of Flash player that
causes the problem...
