So I have a 2016 MacBook Pro with AMD 555 graphics. The card is selected in the settings. I don
t really understand the settings here yet… It seems that there are two modes… 1-Raytraced in the viewport and 2-Raytraced after you click the render button. 1-completely freezes my MacBook and takes over 5-minutes to orbit a little in the viewfinder. Its just unresponsive and not useable. 2-Its still slow but doesn’t freeze my MacBook.
It doesn’t seem like a hardware issue because the Radeon 555 is ‘okay’. A Vega 64 might quadruple the performance, but I’m not sure if it would be enough to make Raytrace mode useable. Am I missing something in the settings?
Also, I noticed that the render finishes on 100% when all of the black bars are filled in. What settings can be changed to keep it rendering until it reaches a low noise threshold?
