Check out the red stripe that they use as a loader. It always animates smoothly. How do they do this? Most percentage style loaders I've worked with jump and animate in a bumpy way, and not smooth like that.

I'm thinking that flash doesn't load things in an even way, hence, the percentage bar tends to jump around. Do you think on this site, the red stripe isn't actually a functional percentage loader? How would that work?

I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Thanks,
