Hi, I would like to know if there’s any benefit of using ofImage::clone over simply copying with operator ‘=’
When I measure CPU time, there was almost no difference between two.
So I wonder if there’s any benefit of using ofImage::clone than just simple ‘=’ ?
Here’s my test code
image1.load("bigpng.png"); std::clock_t startcputime = std::clock(); image2.clone(image1); //option1 image2 = image1; //option2 double cpu_duration = (std::clock() - startcputime) / (double)CLOCKS_PER_SEC; std::cout << "Finished in " << cpu_duration << " seconds [CPU Clock] " << std::endl;
EDIT: when I loop 1000 times, clone seemed to be always slightly faster than '='
So maybe this could be the only benefit?
