What would be an acceptable file size for the animation?

If there is any problem with creating such an effect as this, the file size has to be it. The animation at the beginning of the tutorial clocked in at about 18k because the image is quite large. Then again, the entire animation along with the text and other "stuff" on my Flash footer that you will see in the kirupa.com and Flashkit forums is only 8k in size. Try to make the image in the animation that uses this effect as physically small as possible. I wouldn't recommend having a 1024x768 image scrolling across the screen (no matter how well it animates and transitions)! The file size you use depends entirely upon how long you want your dial-up visitors to wait.

I hope the information helped. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to post them on my Message Board, your question will be responded to shortly.

Happy flashing,
Kirupa Chinnathambi

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
