When using a background image zoomed in, blender slows down significantly, almost to the point of being unusable.
The image size is 3033 x 2020 (3,261KB File Size) so its a fairly high resolution photo.
When zoomed out, the 3D view port does not lag or run slow, but when zoomed in to, for example, outline the eyes of my reference image, my view port starts to lag. The more i zoom in, the worse the lag becomes.
I’m using blender 2.5b and would like to know if anyone else is experiencing this problem or if it has been already resolved.
