    Slllllloooooooowwww

      I am trying to make a cloud .mov slowly animate, and I can obviously do that by lowering the fps, but when I do so the movie just ticks along and it is not very smooth or attractive?

          when you lower the fps you are lowering the number of frames that play in 1 second - so it is
          expected that the animation will play slower - what frame rate are you using? are you testing in the
          flash player or exporting to video format? flash is not a pre-rendered frame rate format - it is
          dynamic and renders on the fly - if animation is too heavy it will play back poorly on slower machines.

            Well, the first part of the animation is a swf, but the video with the sky moving I imported as a .flv. I think the way I have it now is fine. But the first part is really jumpy. If I import that as a .flv or .mov file do you think it would be smoother? Here is the link: http://207.36.196.88/littlestsimonsisland.com/

              well hard to say - what is the frame rate of:

              1. your flash document
              2. your imported flv?

              The entire movie looks processor-heavy to me since you are animating some pretty big bitmaps.

                They are both 5 frames per second.

                I did export the beginning part of the moving book to a video and then import it back as a .flv file, and it was much, much smoother, but the quality of the bitmap has decreased. I exported the video as high a quality as possible? I really appreciate your help.

                  5 fps will always play slow - it's like driving your car at smph and asking why you are not going
                  any faster - raising the frame rate will increase speed :)
