Thanks for sharing that example! Outstanding images. Anyone reading, do take a look - http://www.derekhudson.com/
Here are some resources related to best practices and compressing images. Happy to take a look at your fxp file.
Compressing images inside Flash Catalyst -http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flashcatalyst/cs/using/WSe0363cf428f0b465ffa9edb1273 635cfd7-8000.html
Thanks Tanya for your answer. Yes, the people who made that website (group94) do superb work in my opinion.
Where can I send you my Fxp? I really like Flash Catalyst, if only I could make this work properly.
Did some testing in different browsers. In Opera its almost not noticeable. In Safari and Firefox the problem is worse. Checked the derekhudson.com
There is some tendencies in Safari and Firefox, but not at all as severe as mine with the picture completely distorting.
Could there be a problem with framerate, my computer?
I had a chance to look at your file this evening. Nice design and lovely photos of your work. Please do share a link for the community when complete.
I think that file size of the library assets is the issue. In your library you have a 31MB flv and 6MB swf, along with various images that look like they could be compressed smaller. These assets are being compiled when you publish (even if you're not using them in the project yet). This large download would impact performance. I'd suggest going through your file and deleting everything that is not being used in the project currently, and then testing the transitions. Add assets in as you build out the other states, and test often.
This will look super when you're finished.
Thanks Tanya for taking the time. Really cool of you. I tried a couple of things you mentioned, and even started a smaller project from scratch.
Howevever the problem still remains. Maybe its something with my webbrowser. I'm considering making some changes to the transitions and skipping the moving objects and just have the images fade in / fade out.
Again, many thanks for your time and help!
Perhaps post a draft to a server url and ask the community to take a look. That way you can rule out whether it's your computer. I had no issues with the transitions when I ran the project locally (Mac w. Firefox and Safari).
Interesting.You did'nt see any distortion in the images in the transitions. So maybe I can go along and finish the project with my original idea?
Thanks again Tanya!
