Does destroying animated sprite take time for garbage collection?


Recommended Posts

I am using 150-250 sprites of size 1920x1080 in animated sprite. There are four stages, whenever I don't need a stage I destroy animated sprite and base textures for it. Memory does get released after some time but I was curious if I am doing something wrong apart from using too large and too many images. Following is how I am destroying everything,


 children: true,
 texture: true,
 baseTexture: true
videoSprite = null;

for (var i = 0; i < textureArray.length; i++) {
 var texture = textureArray[i];

textureArray = null;

Anything I am doing wrong or can do to release memory faster?

"texture.destroy(true)" should work, yep.

In ase you forgot to free something, pixi will automatically remove object from videomemory in a minute or two. You can place breakpoint here or add "console.log" to see if GC is triggered: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/blob/dev/packages/core/src/textures/TextureGCSystem.js#L103
