I have a pretty gnarly translate/scale animation running on my Mac in jdk 7u7 or jdk 7u10. Javafx 2.2.x doesn't seem to be able to handle it. The animation is choppy and slow. I had the exact same animation in 2.1/jdk 6 on the same computer and it was smooth and fast.
Any reason for this? Is there any way I can tell if GPU is being used?
I wonder how this performs when you use the setup Java 7 update 5 + JavaFX 2.1 (so only upgrade the JDK, not JavaFX). If only to rule out that the problem actually originates from the JDK update and not JavaFX specifically.
