View Full Version : Lagging everywhere

05-02-2010, 01:21 PM
I'l having big lagging issues with Layout. I'm trying to rig a simple character (granted, I'm new at this, but still), but all the commands are incredibly slow, I can't even move the bones without having to wait 2-3s, if they move at all... And it's not only the display, menu buttons are not reactive (bones on/off, input fields, parameters...), it's like the whole thing is slowing down. I've tried reducing all OGL display options, anything I could think off, to no noticeable result. Has this happened to anyone, or am I missing something ?

I'm on a Macpro, 2x2.8ghz, 14Go RAM, Nvidia GEforce 800 GT

Oh, and it's the same thing with the 9.6.1 Beta

Here's the character, really nothing special

Reduce your subdivision setting to 1 or 0 for animating, that should help speed things up.

Perhaps check your preferences in the open gl tab, for geometry acceleration, you have streaming and vbo, I usually
go for vbo.

Thanks guys. Reducing the subd to 0 works, but it's not really essay to see what I'm doing . I'm surprised my LW can't handle easily a simple character like that, I've seen rigging videos with much larger meshes.

strange..It doesnīt seem to be a figure to hard to handle for lightwave, my
guess is that itīs something else than lightwave thou.

As usual in such cases- delete config files and try whether it fixed issue.

If you are using a Wacom Tablet try getting the latest driver that might have something to do with it also. It should not be lagging like that in Lightwave.
