Too many plugins?

Right now I have over 10+ plugins and zorder / levels over 10. The more plugins I add, the slower the framerate / performance. All the plugins are just PNG or JPG files (basic images). Has anyone else noticed the performance issue with having too many plugins?

I just turned on the FPS plugin to see the framerate and at one point of the pano I have about 6 layers / zorder displaying all at once and the framerate drops to about 25 fps from the original 60 fps and that's on a fast quadcore machine with a good graphics card.

But I am thinking this is more of a Flash limitation than a krpano issue. Maybe the same can be done in SPi-V on Shockwave with no performance issue, who knows. *mellow*

krpano doesn't do much calculations on plugins/hotspots so that it could effect framerate,

but if the images are very large and/or there are several blendmodes used,
it's possible that flash need much time to render them,
note - flash rendering is software only, that means some effects like blendmode, alpha,
and so cost a lot of performance,

do you have a link to this pano?
maybe I could tell you more then...
