I am new to Blender and 3D graphics in general. So please forgive me for the noobish questions.
I am beginning 3D animation, and I am experiencing some very slow playback in the viewport. I’m trying to get 24 FPS but I’m averaging about 8-10 FPS. I downloaded a animation file that I am studying, and the FPS is just super slow. The characters are quite complex and a lot is going on. The viewport sub divisions are set to 0 and I’m still getting incredibly slow frame rates. This is disappointing to me because I bought a workstation desktop computer. The specs are as follows:
Intel Xeon E5-1620 V3 3.5GHZ
16GB of RAM
AMD Firepro W4100 with 2GB of memory
Windows 10 Pro
And I am running Blender 2.78a
I downloaded the latest drivers for my graphics card, and I still get slow playback. I tried change the Compute device in the user preferences> System and that didn’t work.
Like I said before, I am still a noob with this stuff, so I could be missing something.
