Tips for Using Flash Efficiently


Flash is one of the most used technologies in web development. It brings in interactivity to web sites and pleases human eye. Flash development is thus preferred by most web developers to provide the website with the extra edge. Flash programmers have mastered the art of game development over the years and most of the online games that you come across have been developed in Flash. Hire flash developers who have expertise in the technology to ensure the platform can be used efficiently.

 

Tips for Flash Development

 

  • Compress Files – One of your key objectives is to keep the file size low and you should fine-tune the compression type and quality for every image in the Library using the Bitmap Properties. If graphics contain many details, gradients, and colors you should use JPEG compression or else you can use PNG compression for less complex images.
  • Minimize Filter Usage - Keep the usage of the filters to a bare minimum and use it only when you need a specific effect. Like, if you are planning to give a shadow affect to the image, do it in the image editing software rather than in Flash as it affects a project’s function.
  • Use Clear Fonts - If your visitors can’t read your title or navigation, you’re definitely in trouble with your Flash file. Avoid using illegible fonts no matter how fancy they look. The dynamism of Flash is enough to impress the audience and having clear fonts would serve your purpose better.
  • Audio Needs Attention – If you are using audio in your Flash file you should attach a mute button to the file. Not all the visitors would like the audio in the file, some might get annoyed. A mute serves better rather than the site or game being closed.
  • Use Lower Frame Rates - Test your project using different frame rates and choose the lowest where your animation plays smoothly.  Higher frame results in lesser time for the player to draw elements on the stage which often results in decreased performance.
  • Be Careful With Visible Area – When it comes to game development, you need to be careful with the visible area. Avoid placing objects off the stage area. The unseen graphics in the background will continue to consume resources while the SWF file plays. Use ActionScript code to set the visible property of the object rather than bringing them from outside the stage.
