Chapter 5. Playing & Refining Movies > Comparing Target Tempo with Actual Tempo

Comparing Target Tempo with Actual Tempo

Director tries to play a movie at the tempo you've set in the tempo channel, which functions as the target tempo, or the maximum tempo. The actual playback speed may fall short when the movie includes complex animation. If you plan to run your movie on a wide range of systems, comparing the set tempo with the actual tempo (Figure 5.17) on a slower computer allows you to set appropriate tempo values for the frames, so that the actual tempo never falls below the set tempo.

Figure 5.17. The Control Panel shows both the target tempo and the actual tempo.
