Transitions debilitating text crawl
« on: October 01, 2010, 08:37:56 PM »
Hello everyone, this is my first post.  I tried searching but couldn't find anything...

My problem:
I'm running (8) 768 x 1254 images that transition to each other after 9s with a wipe effect.  The images are optimised to be approx. 200KB each.
I have a text crawl and a .PNG logo beneath the image area.
When the images transition, the text crawl severely stutters and briefly stops and looks very unprofessional.  I've updated the client and server software and set the "Step" value to 4.
I've got over 30 screens with this issue and could really use some help.  Thanks in advance.

Hi

the crawler always seems to run badly during transitions-the secret I found is to give it a background colour instead of transparency and use a reasonable text size-this should help tremendously.
