First, a short background into what I am doing. I have a script which reads data from an ascii file and creates IPO curves from that data. I had been using the addBezier method to create the points along the curve. It seems that this method has been recently deprecated in favor of the append method. Now what I have noticed is that append is much slower than addBezier. Formerly, on a sample run, this script took ~0.70 seconds to execute. Now with the same sample run, but using the append method instead, the execution time increases to ~6.4 seconds.
Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?
