Text graphic animation bog down

i have a pretty large text graphic with a lot of links within them. i have that text graphic fading in when that page opens up and i’ve done that with a simple motion tween and just key framing the alpha from 0% to 100% over 20 frames. When i test the movie and it gets to the part where the text is going to fade in, it slows down considerably until that animation of the text is done and then everything else seems to run at normal speed. (i have other animation on the page). is the best way to deal with is to break up the text or is there something else i can do?

Not quite sure what’s going on here… Can you post the .fla file so we can have a look?

Alpha is one of the bigger bogs on speed.

I’d suggest trying to get the alpha transition set to go when everything else has stopped moving.

Also try, increasing your frame rate

Lastly, try legthening, or shortening the amount of frames in the tween and see what sort of change that produces with each.

Sometimes these things just need to be played with until they come out right… sometimes we have to scrap projects because they just can’t work the way we want. :stuck_out_tongue:

thanks! i’ll try those things…
