Is replacing Enter_Frame Event listener with Greensock Faster?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone so I am moving a Movie Clip across the stage using Animate CC/AS3 and I was wondering which way is faster or if it even matters?


The initial method I would use was straight forward using an ENTER_FRAME Event Listener like so

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, platformLoop);
private function platformLoop(e:Event):void 
			this.x -= 8.0;

the Second Method which i am currently using now is like so:


private function init():void 
			TweenLite.delayedCall(0.001, moveChar);
		private function moveChar():void 
			TweenLite.delayedCall(0.001, moveChar);
			this.x -= 8.5;

This method using Greensock works just fine and moves the player across the screen pretty smooth. But I was thinking does it even matter is one faster or more efficient than the other?

From what I can tell there would be no benefit to using your second method. Calling a function every 1000th of a second isn't going to get you more visual updates than ENTER_FRAME.
