I"ve not seen discussed yet what I’m seeing but I imagine its very similar
I do not have a ‘high’ end machine , but it does everything I need and then some pretty easily.
I5-3570 8gb GTX 950 2gb windows 10 pro , just for FYI maybe helpful, prob. not.
Anyway my current project starting elsewhere, is 2mil tris, opened in blender and a .blend created later for faster loading.
I don’t expect miracles with my current rig though other 3d apps manage just fine Houdini handles it the best so far while maya does too ( not as good once i’m IN edit mode though but going TO edit mode in maya is instant ).
I’m posting not because I don’t know the status of 2.8, to let someone know about my issue that I’ve yet to see mentioned: Mesh loads, I hit TAB for edit mode, it takes 15 sec or so just to get into edit mode.
Is anyone else seeing that ?
Editing isn’t horrible really, I could deal with it, for me its the unacceptable wait time just getting there.
I’ve tried flat mode ( can’t even see mesh so I had to try another one) , backface jumbles visuals to much and the mesh is far too complex to select areas to hide. Not possible.
Is my issue of going into edit mode via TAB, very slowly a known issue with current 2.8beta ?
I don’t mind waiting I get it, just wanted to make sure my issue is known and I don’t need to do a bug report.
