I got this Flex question from one of our Flex clients at On3:
“Aside from what I read here on image caching… http://userflex.wordpress.com/2008/07/28/image-caching/ do I have other options for improving performance of image rendering for flex? (Ex. I have to render 50+ low res images per page.) I realize for more ‘static’ images you can embed them in the .swf file but this does not seem like a nice approach as these images could change frequently and they have corresponding persisted meta-data. Do you know of any similar flex projects that serve up a lot of media and how they optimize download and rendering performance?”
My advice was to check out Ely Greenfield’s SuperImage class.
The examples and download are at the bottom of the post.
