requestAnimationFrame() function

requestAnimationFrame() function: Learning 3D Graphics on the Web with Three.js

To have your three.js scene rendering at all times, you need to make use of the requestAnimationFrame() function. requestAnimationFrame() is a method on the window object. It is similar to the setInterval in a sense that it periodically calls the given function. But it also performs certain performance optimizations regarding when a frame gets painted, which makes it preferable to use this function over the setInterval() function when working with animations. Not updating object properties inside the console should actually update the scene as well.
