I’m reading through someone else’s code and there’s a portion I don’t get. I think it’s probably fairly standard because I’ve seen it pop up in other code, but I can’t find an explanation. For reference, win refers to our experiment window:
introClock = core.Clock() introClock.reset(-_timeToFirstFrame) while continueRoutine: t = introClock.getTime() tThisFlip = win.getFutureFlipTime(clock=introClock) tThisFlipGlobal = win.getFutureFlipTime(clock=None)
I think I get that nThisFlip represents the expected time of the next screen refresh based upon the introClock. What is a global screen refresh and why is it not tied to a particular clock? I’m inclined to think the fresh rate not just of the window, but the screen, but that doesn’t seem to make sense given that it’s a property of the win object.
