From the Forum – Issue #149
Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

More than lips and audio need to stay in sync during gameplay. In this thread, learn how to control multiple elements that need to move along in a timely way that isn’t impacted by frame delays.
For some, Lua memory management is a mystery, while for others it’s just magic. Wherever you stand, this thread is a great discussion on how Lua uses memory for various data types.
