MovieClip animationSpeed


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to work out how to set the frame rate for a MovieClip animation. I assume this is where the animationSpeed property comes in, but the API documentation is rather vague:



The speed that the MovieClip will play at. Higher is faster, lower is slower

What does this mean in terms of frames per second? If I want an animation to play at, say, 15 FPS, what value should the animationSpeed property be?

By default, I believe it plays animations assuming 60fps.

You can control the time for each frame however, by changing slightly how you create one

For example, if you wanted a 10fps animation, instead of

let textures = [texture1, texture2, texture3, texture4, texture5]; 
let coolAnimation = new MovieClip(textures);
coolAnimation.animationSpeed = 0.166;

You can do

let textures = [
  {texture: texture1, time: 100},
  {texture: texture2, time: 100},
  {texture: texture3, time: 100},
  {texture: texture4, time: 100},
  {texture: texture5, time: 100}

let coolAnimation = new MovieClip(textures);
