Hi All,

I'm looking for a program can help me time my animations.
I'm not sure if it exists, but if it doesn't, it should... and probably someone could program it pretty simply it if it doesn't.

I'm looking for a program that can record the elapsed time (and corresponding frame according to 24FPS or 30FPS), between each mouse click during a period of time.

It would go like this:

There are two buttons.

Button#1: Start Timer / Record Interval
Button#2: Stop Timer

Lets say I push Button#1, and then the timer begins counting.
While the timer is running, each additional time I click Button#1 again, the program records the time elapsed/corresponding frame# to a spreadsheet.

Then when I'm done clicking Button#1 to record the time elapsed/frame#, I push Button#2 to stop the timer.

Got it? I hope so.......
If anyone knows of a program similar to this, just point me in the direction. If not, anyone wanna take a crack at programming this?

Yep, that looks like what I'm after.
Hesitant to pay 10 bucks for a simple timer, but hey. :hmm:

Thanks for the link Chris.
