i noticed that the transition between the main menu and each gallery stuttered in the middle the first time I visited each gallery. After I had viewed a gallery I could return to it and the animation was fine. So it seems once the gallery is cached, it runs well?
I'm guessing that you are calling a loadMovie as soon as the transition starts and it isn't fully loaded and the timeline is trying to tween it. flash is choking as it is waiting for the gallery to "be there" before it can fade it in or do whatever is happening.
The only way to assure smooth playback (if my assumptions are correct) is use code that loads the external swf, tracks the progess and waits until the swf is fully loaded before your transition occurs.
This will probably put a pretty big monkey wrench into your current setup. don't know what version of ActionScript you are using but start by looking into
Thanks for the response. I'm not using loadMovie, but a URLRequest instead. Below you'll find the code. It's all using .swf files and it's very basic. Perhaps you'll see a more efficent way of using Actionscript?
Thanks for sending that link, too. I still have on my Actionscript training wheels, but they'll be coming off soon!
