My swf file starts off a little choppy. It hesitates a couple times and then it smoothly continues. I have tried increasing and decresing the fps, inserting more blank frames before the actual animation loads. I am not sure what else is there to do to fix the problem. If I need to provide any more information please let me know and I will do my best to provide it. Thank you.
you need to "preload" your swf (or, at least, part of your swf).
with an empty keyframe at frame 1, add a stop() and preloader code and perhaps something to entertain and inform your users that preloading is occuring.
That helped me a lot. I should have thought of that before haha. Thanks again.
