CartoDB Torque animation running longer than 'duration' value in CartoDB editor

CartoDB Torque animation running longer than 'duration' value in CartoDB editor


I'm creating a time series Torque animation with CartoDB, using data that spans a one week period. I've noticed that the animation is running longer than the value that 'duration' is set to in the CartoDB editor. This is true no matter what value I use for the duration. For example, if I set duration to 30 seconds, the animation actually takes about 35 seconds to complete one full cycle. If I set it to 15 seconds, it seems to take about 17.5 seconds.

The map and data can be viewed here.

The relevant CartoCSS code is

Map { -torque-frame-count:1024; -torque-animation-duration:30; -torque-time-attribute:"timestamp"; -torque-aggregation-function:"count(cartodb_id)"; -torque-resolution:2; -torque-data-aggregation:linear; }

Does anyone have experience with this issue or thoughts on what might be causing it?


This seems an actual issue in CartoDB side. I have reported it in the Torque repo: https://github.com/CartoDB/torque/issues/214
