I’ve not yet had the opportunity to spend a serious amount of time working in the WIP.
Now that I want to try and start a rendering project in it I realize what I felt before already:
For me v6 is sluggish, the viewports act slow as if I have a huge model in V5.
Waiting times are long for things like selecting/deselecting.
My first question; is this to be expected and subject to performance improvement later on, or should I start complaining about it right now?
For now, I will start with a full uninstall and re-install.
You should start complaining about this now! If anything, V6 should feel faster.
Just closed and opened the wip and it installed an update.
It feels much faster so I let the install be for now.
I hope this was no cry wolf, yet I;ll report back with any issues I have.
In any case I’m excite to start doing production work with it as this is the first a non critical project, that allows for some instability and (inconvenience in not having my custom toolbars).
I have been finding that after working for a bit, V6 gets pretty laggy (viewport hangs for a bit when trying to rotate a view) after running scripts, lock or hideswap, or an undo. ClearUndo seems to help quite a bit when I run into this. Close and reopen always fixes it.
Perhaps keep an eye on RAM usage, before and after ClearUndo.
