OS (e.g. Win10):
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x):
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?:
What are you trying to achieve?:
I’m creating a visual masking experiment in which I need to have images appear between masks for fractions of a second.
What did you try to make it work?:
I have it working by asking for specific timing to 3 decimal places according to some math I did to determine what 1Hz would be on a 120Hz refresh rate monitor.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
Nothing went wrong as far as I can tell, but I saw a pop up stating that setting the timing by frames might be more accuarte, I was mainly curious as to how Psychopy determine what the frame rate is, and if this will change when I use a 60Hz monitor instead. I sometimes need to do this when writing the experiment on my laptop. I will also be extending my screen to be able to run the experiment on my 60Hz monitor laptop, but displaying the image on a 120Hz external monitor. I have the external extended setting output as 120 Hz. I suppose my question is if the Frame Rate option for timing is contingent upon the monitor I am using, or the settings I have selected for the output?
Thanks for your time!
