updateCache in Pixi v3


Recommended Posts

I have a static Container object that I set to cacheAsBitmap = true.

Even if it is static. Changes sometimes occur and wich means I want to redraw(/reCache) it at the next render.

I accidentally viewed the documentation for Pixi 2 and saw updateCache which seems to be what I want but I can't find it or anything similar in the documentation for V3.

How do I do this?

Can always just set "cacheAsBitmap" to false, then back to true.

But I do only want to do this one time, at the next redraw. Then I need to know when the stage is redrawn and set it back. I could do this but it feels like there is an easier way

I'm not sure what you mean, what I am saying is do this:


function updateCachedBitmap(obj) {    obj.cacheAsBitmap = false; // disable and cleanup currently cached bitmap    obj.cacheAsBitmap = true; // enable and recreate cached bitmap}
If you find you will be wanting to update something, it will probably be easier to just do it with a render texture and have full control:

var texture = new PIXI.RenderTexture(renderer),    sprite = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);texture.render(container); //whatever container you are currently cacheAsBitmap-ing// whenever you need to update the cached texture just do it:texture.render(container);
