Question #120

I'm using GeeWizz to build an image scroller with a cycle for each image. On some cycles the image is not coming into full view, as if the scroller is pausing before the full image comes into view, how can I fix that?

The Answer

The GeeWizz scroller uses framerates for different operating systems, so as to yield a consistent speed across all.

The side effect of this is that the frame rate is different depending on the user's Operating System. For example, in the Medium speed setting it will move the scrolling layer in 1px or 4px increments, depending on the Operating System. In order to guarantee a perfect cycle precision, make sure that your cycle amount is a multiple of 4, that is, the cycle amount should be evenly divisible by 4. While this is of no concern when cycling normal text presentation, it will be important if you want to perfectly position image presentations.

Make sure that the combined total of your image height (or width) and any padding is a multiple of 4 and the use this as the cycle amount.
