@ Kai

So I am understanding how this works.. in your simpler demo...

Am I to understand that its the FrameBufferSizeCallback that is triggered when it recognizes that its no longer animating ?

        glfwSetFramebufferSizeCallback(window, fsCallback = new GLFWFramebufferSizeCallback() {}

And thus when it does recognize that the frames have stopped showing, it triggers that method to over rule the original thread ? or is it on the same thread, just simply replacing the original frame with an updated callback buffer ? MY guess is the buffer ends in 0 and so it triggers the Operating System to return a message to GLFW and thus it tells it "Hey I am not receiving anything" and so the FrameBufferSize method overrules the original frame.

Hm... a general "no" to all your questions and assumptions. :)

Let me explain:

That framebuffer size callback is triggered by GLFW (inside of glfwPollEvents() or glfwWaitEvents()) whenever the window manager (part of the operating system) notified the process/application that the window size and thus the framebuffer size has changed (GLFW just calls the "client area" of the window "framebuffer" and reports the client rect size). This usually happens when you resize the window via the mouse (maybe it is also triggered when resizing the window per Win32 API call, I don't know about that).

But to explain further, how that demo works:

There are two threads involved:

- the main thread which reads and interprets window events (via glfwPollEvents() or glfwWaitEvents()). On windows there is a message queue for that process, which gets messages from the operating system (the window manager) when something happens, such as resizing the window. Upon calling glfwPollEvents() or glfwWaitEvents() GLFW processes the messages in the message queue and then the various glfw callbacks get called on specific window messages. Such as when you entered a key on your keyboard, then there would be a "key input message" in the message queue, which gets then read by GLFW within glfwPollEvents() and upon that, the keyboard callback would get executed (if you have one registered!)
This is all the main thread does now: read and interpret window messages and invoke corresponding callbacks in Java

- the render thread: This thread executes OpenGL commands and renders to the window's back buffer and swaps buffers between the back and front buffers to make the render results visible. This thread owns the OpenGL context (which only a single thread can own at a given time, because OpenGL IS NOT multithreaded).

The "animation" in that demo is just done by rotating that quad based on the time elapsed since the last loop iteration, which is queried via System.nanoTime() and scaled to seconds. Therefore it looks like the quad is rotating smoothly.

Interesting and I can use a SYNC command to sync it down to say 60 frames a second in GLFW if I remember right. I will have to play with this new toy. Thank you for this info. I will definitely have to study up on how this works.

Also, I am assuming this works on all Operating Systems.

The syncing is done by glfwSwapBuffers() when you also made use of glfwSwapInterval() with a value greater than 0, which then will make use of V-Sync depending on the monitor's refresh rate.

Gotya. Ok thank you once again. :)

Try the latest/current version of the simple demo. We now of course have to synchronize the main thread and the render thread on important GLFW calls. :)

Thank you. So far so good. If I see anything further I'll let you know.

Also, i noticed on the timer you used 1E9f.. I am used to seeing that with 1000f ..  I changed it to 1000f and I ended up seeing the cube spinning faster. Is that HEX you are using ? I converted it to decimal and it came to 489. Is there some info about this ? I am curious how you came up with this.

NOTE : When I changed it to 489f it doesn't quite work as your HEX does. So I am puzzled by this.

It's the scientific notation for one million billion (1 with 9 zeroes). Look up on "scientific notation".
It is a very useful method of representing very big or very small (near zero) numbers in a short format, which is better than decimal having to fill a lot of zeroes in it.
I divide by one million billion to convert from nanoseconds (1 millionth billionth of a second) to seconds.

EDIT: Hex values in Java are prefixed by 0x (zero and 'x' character)

To give an update to this thread.

Sadly, I had to go back to LWJGL 2.9.3. The math is complete in that version where as JOML it is not complete and when I made a 3D Engine out of LWJGL3 it bogged down badly. The performance was really sad.

The same engine in 2.9.3 works fine without slowing down.

I will have to see if there is a way to have the refreshing of the screen while dragging in 2.9.3. Thank you once again for trying to help out with my issues.
