Screensaver runs slower on some computers

Postby mbockstruck » Mon Dec 19, 2005 11:14 pm

I recently purchased the SF3 for my company, and I just finished my first screensaver. I sent it to some people within my company to test it. It works fine except it runs much slower on some computers? Is this common? Will performance always depend upon the computer quality? Thanks.

Thank you for your question. Yes, the screensaver speed depends on computer speed, this is because transition effects are rendered faster on better PCs. If you disable transition effects or select the basic effects like fold, then this can be at least partly solved.

This is an industry wide issue - graphic software always works faster on better PCs.
