Im having a problem w/ milkshape when i run an animation. Its really choppy when I run it on my home machine(geforce fx 5600) and when I run my animation in class its really smooth. Anyone know why this is ? If so would appreciate the help =) p.s. I am using the newest version of milkshape on both machines. And am using windows xp pro at both locations.

Is it running choppy or slow? If it is running slow than you can change the Animation FPS is File->Preferences.

Ok, are you playing your animation inside the program or are you playing the rendered movie?

Either way, its probably just because your movie can't keep up. Its not just your graphics card that makes the animation play, you've got to have a decent processor speed and memory. If its rendered video, you might want to lower the resolution or try a different codec (an uncompressed codec will most likely always be choppy).

Have you compared the specs on both machines? Hehehe, if you are running a 1 Ghz 512 mb machine at home and are using a 3 Ghz 2 gb ram machine at school... that's your answer.

Also, if you are playing the animation in editor, you might want to check your preferences and make sure OpenGL shading is on (I'm assuming Milkshape uses OpenGL, correct me if I'm wrong). Your home program might be configured (by default) to use software shading while the computer at school might default to OpenGL.
