Do you see the jumping still when you've exported the swf and run that,
rather than previewing/test movie? You'll still see the jumpiness in some
cases doing a test movie or while scrubbing the playhead, but it should go
away when really playing the swf.

Oh, now that I think a little more, it seems possibly related to your
graphics card. I could take the same jumpiness and run it on other PCs, and
if they had the same card as mine, it jumped - if they didn't, it didn't.

Oh well.

Thanks. That helps a bunch. It still doesn't solve it entirely--they still
jump around just not as much--but I think it's finally in the acceptable
range. Whew! I'm glad the next project is vector from the ground up. I feel
kind of ground up myself. Thanks again.

Best regards,

Pete
