Animation smoothness

Flash movies play at a constant frame rate. The faster the frame rate, the smoother the animation. Xara defaults to showing 24 frames per second. To change the rate select the Flash Options tab of the Animation Properties dialog.

 The Flash Options tab, where you can change the movie speed as well as the Flash export version.

Note: The faster the frame rate, the larger the resulting Flash file. You will find that if your animation is mostly objects fading in and out with relatively little fast moving animation, then you can reduce the frame rate to under 24 frames per second. If you have a lot of fast action, it may be necessary to increase the frame rate, but it's rarely necessary to have it above 50 frames per second.
