Measure Time (vuo.time.measureTime)

Calculates the time elapsed since this node started keeping track.

This node is useful for controlling animations. You can connect the Requested Frame output port of a node that displays a graphics window (such as Render Scene to Window) to the Time input port of this node. Starting when an event hits this node’s Start input port, each time the Time input port receives an event, the Elapsed Time port outputs a time relative to the start time. For example, if the Time input port is receiving events every 1/60 seconds, the Elapsed Time port outputs a series of values such as 0, 1/60, 2/60, 3/60, … You can use these times to calculate an object’s position or other parameters in an animation.

Keywords: animate, count, cue, elapsed, frame, pause, start, stopwatch
