One of the problems that you're going to hit; everyone's going to hit this problem, is at some point you're going to throw so many effects at Flash that it will slow down. What you're seeing right now is an animated smoke effect, and we will be doing this later on the course. But I want you to see what's going to happen when you throw a lot of these different particles at the Flash program; at the SWF, or the swiff, format. I am going to make it even worse than it is right now by hitting Full Screen.

And this is a fairly fast computer, and what you're seeing -- it starts pretty fast, and then as the particles begin to really hit their maximum number, it slows down, and then it speeds up again as the particles have dissipated. And what's happening is a combination of stresses on the player. All these gradients, and the number of them, is simply too much for Flash, even on a fast compute...
