Any chance for Synfig to stop lagging?

Postby rocendroll » Thu Jun 14, 2018 5:17 am

Is there any way to fix lagging present in Synfig? For instance when moving an object or rotating it/zooming canvas

Hi,
it would be helpful if you were adding some info here:
- Synfig version (1.3.8 form me)
- OS (Ubuntu 18.04 64bit for me)
- GFX card drivers up-to-date?

According a previous post you are under Win 10.
Some recent updates of Win 10 and GFX drivers made it slower also
See https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/in ... #msg285282 for example

Thank you for an answer
I have 1.3.5 version of a Synfig.
Win10, and a laptop with Mobility Radeon 5850 2GB

Is it possible to get rid off lags in any way? I mean - does it in your setup, works well without it?

Try to update to 1.3.8
Be sure your power profile uses 100% CPU and the laptop is power supplied
Check any possible trouble with drivers (GFX, Sound, Wireless, Hard Disk...), with a DPC Latency Checker if needed
Try to changer the Rendering Engine in the Preferences
Ensure Synfig uses your Radeon GFX card instead of the internal graphic card (I've got a Nvidia, I can choose per process)

Anyway Synfig redraws the full tree of Layers beeing modified, so you will always have a bit of lag ;)
