View Full Version : newbee speed question

I'm on a G5 dual 2Ghz with 2Gb ram. LW 8.2 OS X 10.4
It is driving me crazy in LW 8. I have a small particle emitter that is parented to a null object and a wind object. To try and move this thing is nuts. I click and the F#[email protected]% color wheel starts spining. Then in about 1 min it jumps to the other side of the screen. It only has a max of 50 particles.

Is it supposed to be this slow or am I doing something stupid.

It's the particles being blown by the wind that LW is trying to re-calculate every time you move something. Try turning off the wind before you move.

That still seems worse than it should be, I used to push a couple hundred particles around with several wind generators on my dual 450, and it was slow, but it's a slow machine - I don't suppose the emitter is parented to the wind null? That could cause it to loop.... I think...
