Short and quick background; I’ve been producing virtual choirs since 2009. I started in After Effects, but moved to Blender a couple years ago. I’ve been working with 60 - 100 or so sets of images sequences. The response time in viewport shader mode has been quite slow, but I’m afraid of how bad this is going to be with my upcoming project in which there will be 550+ image sequences in one scene.
I purpose built an $8000 PC to handle these big projects but I still had slow responsiveness in the viewport with shader view enabled. What can I do to improve responsiveness in the viewport? Proxies, hardware upgrades, image type for image sequences, something else?
Here are some specs of the computer I use:
Aorus Xtreme TRX40 Motherboard
AMD Threadripper 3960x (24c/48t)
4x NVMe Drives, Raid 0
4x Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
