Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Motion/jittery problem in Flash

    Motion/jittery problem in Flash

    Hi guys,

    I've been struggling with this for about a week now.

    I am trying to make a simple object move across the screen, but I am running into the problem if it being jittery and choppy. I tried to adjust the frame rate, but it didn't help much.

    I am not sure what to do next. I kind of thought something as simple as this would flow a lot nicer, especially since Flash is supposed to be known for doing good animation, but it just doesn't look great.

    I am running Windows 7, 64-bit, 8GB RAM, Quad-core 2.4ghz processor.

    I have attached the .fla file. Also, here is a link to the swf file: http://legionofderp.com/testing-sword-03.swf

    If someone could take a look and give any sort of helpful device, that would be awesome!

    Unfortunately this is something you'll encounter with any non-accelerated graphics with HTML5 or Flash.

    Try using a tween library, such as TweenLite instead of timeline animation. If you are set on using timeline animation, try adjusting the easing of the motion so the sword isn't moving at a constant speed. The constant velocity makes the stuttering much more noticeable.
