Brand new to Blender and so far I am so impressed at how far it has come since when I first checked it out. I seem to be running into a problem with its performance though.
I have a fairly capable new Mac Pro that seems like it should handle Blender with no problem but as I began putting together this model it really started chugging on me in the end. I had to keep turning segments of him off in order to keep a smooth workflow going.
What optimizations would you guys recommend?
