Outputs

Scene Time [-∞..+∞]

This value is measured in seconds and displays the current time within the scene or animation.

System Time [-∞..+∞]

This value is measured in seconds and displays the time span for how long your computer has been running. Contrary to the Scene Time output, this value is continuous and is dependent on the animation.

FPS [-∞..+∞]

This numeric value represents the selected number of animation frames per second and can be selected in the Project Preferences menu.

Frame [-2147483648..2147483647]

This output displays the frame number currently being calculated within the animation. If you divide the Frame value by the FPS value, the result will be the Scene Time value. You can also multiply the Scene Time by the FPS value to get the Frame value.
