How do I pre-render images?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Sep 08, 2014 6:39 pm

In something like SDL I would be able to just blit my bitmaps onto a new surface, in construct2 the only real option seems to be pinning sprites, that's all well and fine, but gets messy with complicated things (for example, a pinned on head would need to bob 1px every few frames to sync with a walking animation)

I have a follow up question about performance:

Take the thought example of taking 3-4 base bodies, and randomly assigning them faces, now putting a bunch of these actors on the stage/layout... Is it more performant to render a pre-rendered image for each actor, or is it more performant to pin 20 different heads on 3-4 base bodies. (effectly reusing the bodies and some of the faces)

It would depend on the number of frames for the pre render, and, or size, but thats for memory.
Neither have much effect on performance
