Question on PDKs RenderingPlugin

Postby BenBaron » Mon Sep 02, 2019 8:33 pm

Hi guys,

just for clarification: is it safe (like e.g. thread-safe) to perform tasks unrelated to the actual rendering in the Render or PreRender methods? Which are thus called at the pace of the framerate? Like an IBaseObject's GetPosition() or GetProperty() methods?

Maybe this might put a strain on the sim performance-wise, if done heavily, but I am more concerned about safety, right now. It seems to work flawlessy, but maybe there is a catch somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Greets, Benny

Hi guys,

can be disregarded. In the meantime I've found out that the renderer is also running on the main thread. So no problem.

All the best, Benny
