Hey Everyone,

What timing system does everyone use for their elapsed time between frames? Do you need the extra precision of mach?

Thanks!

Yes, nothing wrong with mach time. The precision isn't really all that important, but it doesn't really cost much, if anything, so might as well use it. I only call it once per frame anyway, so it's essentially free, in terms of overhead.

Two recent threads on it: here and here

And a time-based animation article to look at: here
