I just purchased a 2022 Macbook Pro (Apple M1 Max chip with 10-core CPU, 32-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine, 64gb of Memory) and a simple scene (5 characters -- created in AI-- walking from point A to point B, then some dialogue) is painfully slow in preview. It starts at 24fps, immediately goes to 10fps, and goes all the way down to 4 fps at its worst.
I opened up the activity monitor and saw that it is only using around 2-3gb of memory, and around 230-250%CPU.
How do I optimize CH so that it is not so slow in preview?
I guess this product is just a demo... 😞
There are no "draft" modes or anything similar in Character Animator yet, so what you see is what you get. In heavy scenes I will try:
With 5 characters, I would say try turning off 2-3 characters at a time and see if performance increases (I believe it should).
ok thank you! I will try that.
By the way, the product is incredible, this is the only "snag" I have encountered so far. We are constantly amazed at the speed of which we can do things, but then in preview it is a bit slow. Keep up the amazing work, and many props to the team!
