Preparing Your Movie for Optimal Playback

When you create movies to show over the Web, you must face the issue of quality versus quantity. Higher quality (smoother animation and better sounds) increases file size. The larger the file, the longer the download time and the slower your movie will be. Things that add to your file’s size include lots of bitmaps (especially animated bitmaps), video clips, sounds, lots of keyframes instead of tweening, multiple areas of animation at one time, embedded fonts, gradients, and separate graphic elements instead of symbols and groups.

To help you find out where your movie is bogging down, Flash offers simulated streaming. The Size Report and Bandwidth Profiler reveal which frames will cause hang-ups. You can then rethink or optimize the problem areas.
