Default ...animations laggy - 03-10-2009, 02:19 PM

I made a dogfight (with planes, not dogs...) and every time I run the animation, it looks really laggy after each set of methods. Is there a way to made it not so laggy?

um... is it a big file? u cant usually fix this, but if you use lots on animation like the smoke, dont make it so it runs infinitely, only when needed, cause when u got 50 smokes playing, but there invisible, they do lots of damage to ur speed

check for stuff like this...other than that, i think DrJim might have more luck answering your question....

Two suggestions:

1. Check the duration parameter for each of your commands. The default value is 1 second, which can make things really lag.

2. If you are doing a series of commands, like moves in a loop, make sure the style is set to "abruptly". The other options will make the object slow down and/or speed up gradually at the start and end of the command.

Otherwise, you may just have too many objects in your world for your computer to handle. Usually it is better to copy an object rather than load multiple copies from the library if you are using many copies of the same thing.
