Render mode on Adobe Animate (CPU,GTU, Direct)?


Does anybody know wif this Render option refer to the way we publish our application or the way people visualize it on their devices?

official doc Building Adobe AIR Applications

under: AIR application descriptor files / AIR application descriptor elements

see renderMode

also in Optimizing Performance for the Flash Platform doc, look at the section Rendering performance


From my experience so far I always had better performances with GPU.
The big deal here is you can’t use the multiply , add layer effect between other option only available with CPU mode.
For instance the displace map filter is CPU mode only.

It really depend what you plan to do in your app but I would recommend GPU if you don’t need special graphics fx. Big benefits with graphics animation
