Jittery Camera

by Jay Barnson · in Torque Game Builder · 09/03/2007 (9:13 am) · 3 replies

I have a player object that (for now) just has the ShooterControls object attached to it.

I have the camera mounted to the player object (sceneWindow2d.mount( player ); )

Unfortunately, the camera movement is very jittery, even after calling setVerticalSync(true). Does anybody else experience this issue? Is there a fix / workaround?

I experience the same issue with TGB1.5.x. The more complex the game is, the worse are the jitters.

Hmmm... well, mine is extremely simple at this point. There's a very definite vibration, as if the interpolation between calculated frames is off. Or maybe there's an inconsistent lag of a frame or two between the update and the rendering.

(Note: Running on an AMD 64 4400+ dual-core CPU, latest drivers, so it's not a slow processor).

Ah, Benjamin - I just found your thread:

Looks like its not just me, and it's not yet been resolved.
