Hello

I remember hearing in a Koen Bok interview about how when you developed Framer initially you guys used a special technique for getting 60 frames per seconds out of web technologies, I am working on some ideas where I'd like to use this in a pure HTML/CSS/JS prototype I'm working on for a TV app , is it a specific W3C specification or a JS library that allows this?

I believe he was referring to using Hardware Accelerated CSS animations. A simple example in Framer is animating width/height vs. animating scale — scale is almost always more performant.

css is hardware accelerated... js animation is not. (for the most part)

You are unlikely to get hardware acceleration on TV platforms. Even PlayStation 4 doesn't always hardware accelerate web view elements.
