I’ve been working on a project for quite some time now and I’ve just moved on to the rigging phase. Everything has been performing just fine until now when I try to do some weight painting. If I turn on the subsurf modifier (even with just 1 level) the performance is reduced to an unworkable level. I’m really not sure what to do. I’ve tried some of the “fixes” suggested by a few users out there, but nothing has put any bit of a noticeable effect on resolving my problem.
I’m running a EVGA GTX 770 4gb card on a EVGA Z87 FTW mobo, Win7 64-bit, 8GB RAM, and an Intel core-i7 4770k processor. What’s my lim-fac? The memory? I don’t understand how the subsurf modifier can reek such havoc on my system. It’s blowing my mind and beginning to get very frustrating.
Thanks for your help
