First off let me say this Forum ROCKS. I have done more with blender since finding this spot then ever before. I do have a little problem though.
I have finally created two …realitvly desent characters in Blender. (Now they are not Pixar quality but still) The viewer window began to get real LAGGY. I did not think that there were that many vertexes. (I switched to box view and it worked a little better but was still lagy)
I guess I haver several questions
- the only thing that is not up to snuff is my video card, will that effect blender OUTSIDE of rendering? Would a new graphics card help my “editing of blender” or would it only help speed of rendering?
- I have a dual processor is there anyway for Blender to dump on both processors for parrallel calulations? (so far I am running 60-80% on one and 20-40% on the other. ) (So it seems I have more cpu available?)
- If i use the “Set Smooth” button do I need to use sub-surfaces? I have not been able to see a difference once I hit Set Smooth.
If any of you have any ideas please reply. I created a simple scene and …it takes about a second to move from one frame to another on the timeline. I am not sure what will happen when I try to put a house on it.
Black Manta :Z
PS I have a gig of Ram. so I don’t think that should be a problem.
