Director 3D > Peformance and Optimization

General Download Optimization tips

  • Try optimizing non-3D elements in your projects. Audio and video can be streamed, etc
  • Custom load bars help keep people interested while they wait for a file to download.
  • Linked Director movies are possible – these load files in one at a time when needed, meaning smaller chunks to download.
  • Texture optimization is the most immediate form of optimization – textures are often the largest part of the file download
  • Model geometry plays a large part in file size – Lingo generated 3Dis the best way around this, if the models are not too complex.
