X3DOM supporting renderAnimationFrame()

14.03.2011 Uncategorized

With the latest development release of X3DOM we are utilizing requestAnimationFrame (here, and here) with browser that provide this feature. The developer versions of Chrome and Firefox (Chromium and Minefiled) already do so. With requestAnimationFrame, the scene is only redrawn when  it isvisible. Hence saving a considerable amount of CPU/GPU power when the browser window/tab is hidden.
