Questions About Performance

How can I improve performance?

There are several performance-related settings in Image Authoring:
  • The Show preview thumbnail in image File Open dialogs setting on the General tab of the Preferences dialog box (available from the Edit menu) can be unchecked to improve performance when opening images or vignettes whose version is 55 or higher.
  • The Browse IPS Folders option on the IPS tab of the Preferences dialog box (available from the Edit menu) can be unchecked to speed up the display of the IPS Export dialog box, if you have a lot of IPS folders. However, if you uncheck this option, you must specify the complete path to a folder when you upload images to IPS.
  • The Redraw the preview texture during vertex moves setting on the Flowline Page tab of the Preferences dialog box (available from the Edit menu) can be unchecked to improve performance on the Flowline page.
  • Lower the Static and Moving values in the Advanced/Meshing option on the Flowline Page tab of the Preferences dialog box. This lowers the resolution of the texture being moved.
  • On the Flowline page, select the Mesh tool and set the Display to Flowlines. When you move flowlines and vertexes, you won't see the mesh but performance does improve.
  • The Use OpenGL for all graphics and Display image in full resolution settings on the 3D Modeling Page tab of the Preferences dialog box (available from the Edit menu) can be unchecked to improve performance on the 3D Modeling page.
  • If the vignette has many overlapping objects, going to the Render page can be very slow as it tries to render all overlapping objects. To turn this off, uncheck Show overlap objects when renderer is reset on the Render Page tab of Preferences.
  • If Image Authoring launches slowly, make sure that the Preferences on the IPS tab are pointing to an active IPS server and your computer can connect to IPS. Image Authoring checks the connection on launch now.
  • If there are many items in Material History, Favorite Materials, Preview Materials, or Material Templates, then this slows down the launching of Image Authoring.
