View Full Version : Accurate simulation time calulations

10 October 2010, 01:31 PM
Hi is there a way to print out the time between pushing play and when the time slider stops to the console/pop up window etc - i'm looking to get data on simulation times for dynamics like cloth and fluids without having to cache and read file creation times etc. Is there a neat method/tool?

Cheers - Something like this works OK. I'll make this up into a proper script with a UI for start and end frame sometime.

$startTime = `timerX`;

play -w;

$totalTime = `timerX -startTime $startTime`;

print ("Total Time: "+$totalTime+"s\n");
