There are delays in almost every
one of Anfy Flash's applets.
The frame delay or speed parameters are the delays between
two animation frames. The pause parameters are usually the
delays between appearing messages, images and sounds. This
is measured in multiples of 83 milliseconds, unless the Flash
applet's manual states otherwise. One thousand milliseconds
is one second.
So, what does this mean? Compare this with your television.
The image you see is replenished every 20 milliseconds, which
is 50 frames per second (fps). However in web applets, you
generally don't have to have more than a replenishing rate
of 12 frames per second, which is 83 milliseconds.
Some applets just use milliseconds for the delays.
There are also other delays that are used in
the Flash applets, but these will vary depending on the type
of Flash applet and the effect it tries to create.
unless the effect's manual states otherwise.
