Just downloaded Blender 2.4 and trying to learn it, but I’ve noticed that the user interface, especially the file open window, is veeeeeery sloooow. Literally, it takes up to 10 seconds to react to a mouse move or click.
Is it possible to compile these python system scripts so that they run a bit faster (ok, a LOT faster) and have them still work with Blender? (If so, I’m surprised this wouldn’t have been done by default :-? )
Or, optionally, are there any plans to incorporate an OS-Native File Open/Save window? I’m betting that this would not be too difficult to do, and that it would be lightyears faster than the default one. No?
p.s. My system is 2.6Ghz and 512MB, so I don’t think that is the problem. and I have nothing running in the background of any consequence. WinXP Pro SP2
