Severe performance degradation using moderate size trianglesoup

Recommended Posts

When loading generative artwork - Affinity Designer slows down to unbearable levels even with relatively easy meshes

This problem seems to exist on all platforms affinity runs on - which leads me to believe basic acceleration structures are not in place.

Example file:


Import this, try select all/ungroup/do anything to it -> framerate down to 1fps even on the beefiest of workstations

Same issue can be recreated by creating any shape and copying it about 100 times.

Hi Zephod,

Are you able to get a screen recording showing the performance you are getting please? Whilst I'm getting a little bit of slowdown, it's not 1fps. See attached recording. With that said if I do a 'Select All' and then move everything around it is much slower. I have spoken to development, and they have said that the performance should be better than that! So I will get it passed over to be looked at!

My current machine is a Core i7 6700k, 16GB DDR4 Ram, Geforce 970, Win 10, Samsung 870 Evo SSD.
