AnimClock - Animation and Rainmeter

Post by jsmorley »

Just a little skin demonstrating how you can have simple animation in your skin without necessarily tearing up your CPU. The animation is done by using the first approach in this Tips & Tricks entry: http://rainmeter.net/cms/Tips-AnimatedGIF. The key to performance is to set the Update= of the skin to what you need to get the animation speed you want, while setting UpdateDivider on EVERY other measure and meter so you are not also hitting things unrelated to the animation with the lower Update rate.
