sprite animation is too slow :( help
« on: March 06, 2006, 03:40:45 PM »


On a scene i have big window, and i wonna make animated curtain for it. In 3dmax we make nice curtain and her animation. Its nearby 50 sprites, .png, but very big problem its a file size - 1 sprite have ~300kb :( So, when i place this sprites on scene, perfomance is criticaly drop. :(

And, as i know, there is no way optimize png.

Make curtain as its really hard, bcos have problem make good animation in milkshape.

So, maybe any other way?

Ps. stream in propertis of sprite already check. almost no changes.

any ideas?

You could make the animation frames smaller and let the engine scale them, or you could make a Theora video and use the Entity.PlayTheora() method to play the video when needed (you will lose transparency that way, though, I don't know if you need it).
