Double Buffering

This is the process of using two frame buffers for smooth animation. While the image of the first buffer is being displayed, the graphics controller can use the second buffer to build or render the next image. Once the second image is completed, the buffers are switched. Thus, the result is the appearance of smooth animation because only complete images are displayed, and the process of drawing is not shown.
