    Launcher Pro + live wallpaper = lag?

    Hey all. Normally LP is SUPER fast for me. Instant scrolling, it's buttery smooth and I have no hiccups usually.

    I've always avoided using LWP's on my Moto Droid because it didn't have enough memory to have a smooth experience. I remember that Nexus One owners didn't have the same problem, LWP's were smoother, probably due to it having a faster processor and more RAM. DINC users have more RAM too, and they said LWP's work smoothly on that phone.

    On my Droid X using the stock motorola launcher, LWP's are smooth and scrolling/overall performance is unaffected. However, with Launcher Pro installed, regular wallpapers work fine, but LWP's cause a good deal of lag/slowdown, especially when scrolling, and a little bit in menus (like hitting the menu button from the homescreen).

    Anyone else have a similar experience with Launcher Pro?

    Just wondering if it is this way for anyone else... it's really kind of a big deal to me, but maybe not enough to keep me from using LP, especially since I paid for Launcher Pro Plus and like the new widget(s) that it comes with.

    I'm not seeing that. I haven't been running a LWP, but I just experimented with a few (grass, maps, smoke) and didn't see any slowdowns with those. I scrolled between pages, opened the menu. Ok, I just messed with the App Drawer, and there appears to be a subtle frame rate drop with a LWP. It's also happening with the stock launcher too, just a different transition effect. I'm running the new Launcher Pro Plus.

    Alright, so it just seems that it still makes enough of an impact on memory usage to inhibit performance, even if it's only slightly on the X as compared to somewhat severaly on the original Droid.

    Seems to confirm my suspicions.

    I had major lag using LWP without Launcher Pro. I went to a static wallpaper and lag seems to have disappeared.

    It lagged for me befrore. Tried it again today and it doesn't seem to lag, though i still hate their widgets. I thought I saw a thread saying we could use the moto widgets in LP now but I don't see them.
