Slide layer "lag"

We have built a custom menu layer that allows the user to jump to any slide they have previously been on.

There are quite a few trigger on the "timeline start" to set the state of each link depending on the users "furthestFrame" value the issue is that this layer takes almost .5 seconds at times to load, and if you click to fast (thinking that it missed your click) the layer will display and hide again.

I have heard people say that they have 100's and sometimes even 1000 triggers? Is there something that I can do the help this load better?

Hi Christian,

It could also be the hosting site, the browser used, or even your internet connection that cause a slow playback! A few things you could try: 

  • Hosting by uploading to Tempshare or using Amazon S3 servers
  • Test out a few different browsers and see if your viewing Flash or HTML5 (web published content will end with story.html or story_html5.html) 
  • Try it from another wifi/internet connection 

If you want to share a link to the output on your site or a copy of your .story file I"m also happy to test any of these too!
