Solved the problem completely.

My test Blender file has 5 different scenes all reasonably populated with objects. By setting the outliner to display ONLY objects in the current scene in stead off ALL scenes the viewport is responsive again.

Thank you for the help, I can Blend hapilly again.

Scrubbing is playing back frames from disk or memory. From disk, you are limited by your I/O speeds. Memory is faster, but uses lots of memory. There is a setting for how many frames to pre-fetch in order to speed things up. I'll give it a try. I'm curious though, how does this work in 2.49b? And w...

I tested this problem at work with a different scene on a different PC, same problem.

Windows 7 professional 32bit
Intel i7
GeForce GT 240

Blender 2.49 flies when scrubbing through the animation, 2.59 is struggling to keep up.


I's this known bug, is anyone having this problem besides me?

The responsiveness of changing parameters like material settings is still sluggish, so is selecting objects in the viewport.

Solved a piece of the puzzle. :) When in Fullscreen mode everything runs fine, ALT+A, stepping through the animation with the arrow keys, all smooth. Unfortunately I have no timeline available in full sceen or any other window I need. CTRL+up and down will now be my most used shortcuts, unless someo...

Viewport performance is just fine with panning zooming rotating in the same test scene as above. Scrubbing through the animation is horrible. When scrubbing in shaded or wireframe mode there is no difference, its equally bad.

What i'm testing for is the speed at which I can scrub through the animation. The scene i'm using is sizable but Blender 2.49 has little problems with it 2.5 is stuttering.

I played with the drawing modes, only "full" gave me a significant change,.. for the worse. :(

Turned off "desktop composition" and I have the windows 7 basic theme.

No difference in performance in 2.59, Blender 2.49 still runs the scenes fine.

[SOLVED] Slow viewport performance Blender 2.59

Blender 2.59 viewport performance is very slow on my machine. My test scene runs very good on Blender 2.49 but in Blender 2.59 it's very slow. What i've tried (and doesnt make any difference) - turned on VBO's - Installed latest Graphic card drivers - Disabled vertical sync in my Nvidia panel Window...

Export "it"? What would "it" be, a 3D model maybe or an animation? You mention QT do you mean this http://qt.nokia.com/products/ or this http://www.apple.com/nl/quicktime/download/ Blender runs very well on Linux and to use it optimally you need a full installation of Python at specially if you are ...
