    Hi all,

    I’ve noticed something off with MovementAnimations. There seems to be a pause or ‘jitter’ as the position of the player changes. I’ve created a simple example that demonstrates this:

    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.0
    GameWindow {
        id: gameWindow
        activeScene: scene
        screenWidth: 960
        screenHeight: 640
        EntityManager {
            id: entityManager
            entityContainer: scene
        Scene {
            id: scene
            width: 480
            height: 320
            Rectangle {
                id: background
                anchors.fill: parent
                color: "black"
            StyledButton {
                id: startButtonn
                text: "Restart"
                anchors {top:; right: parent.right}
                onClicked: player.x = parent.width
            Item {
                id: player
                height: 100
                width: 10
                x: parent.width
                y: parent.height / 2
                Rectangle {
                    id: shape
                    anchors.fill: parent
                    color: "white"
                    radius: 5
                MovementAnimation {
                  id: movement
                  target: player
                  property: "x"
                  velocity:  -75
                  running: true

    Press the button to restart and view it again. I’ve looked at the QML profiler and nothing seems out of the ordinary. Any clues on what’s causing this? Is there an alternative to achieve the desired effect, or a way to mitigate against the visible pauses? The actual object I noticed this with only needs to move on the x axis at a constant velocity.




    There does seem to be something going on from the QML stack trace.

    There are periods at constant intervals when the framerate drops to 15FPS.

    Hi Kool,

    this is definitely caused by the internals of the MovementAnimation, looks like there is a frame dropped in consistent intervals when rendering the moved item, thank you for raising our attention on this. However this only seems to happen on Windows Desktop, we’ll have a look at it.
