JPEG or PNG - Macromedia Director Basics

Hi All, While being aware that .jpeg files will uncompress when opened or used in a projector, what is the situation with .png files? They may not be as small as a compressed .jpeg but are they compressed and do they expand in the same way? Regards AJJA17 "I can resist anything but temptation" Oscar Wilde...

    Default JPEG or PNG

    Hi All,

    While being aware that .jpeg files will uncompress when opened or used in a projector, what is the situation with .png files?
    They may not be as small as a compressed .jpeg but are they compressed and do they expand in the same way?

    Regards

    Any type of file needs to be decompressed/decrypted/decoded before it can be
    used. So, no matter what kind of file you use, the same amount of memory
    will be needed at runtime. The only differences are the size of your
    movie/projector and the time director will need to decompress the file. And,
    in general, the only reason we use compression is because -almost always-
    decompressing is much-much faster than downloading. Well, this and storage
    space.
