Renderable property?


Recommended Posts

Apologies if this was already asked, but I searched and couldn't find an answer.


What exactly does the 'renderable' property do? From my experience with other 2d frameworks, you have opacity, which is a number value, then you have visibility, which toggles hiding or showing. Since Pixi as a renderable AND a visible property, what exactly is the difference between the two?


Does marking something as not renderable yield any particular performance benefit?

Visible makes the object no longer draw *and* the updateTransform functions are not called. Renderable control only visibility on screen (updateTransform is still called). In the case of say MovieClip this means if renderable = false, but visible = true it will still animate but it will not be drawn to the screen.
