I was working on someting simple when the updates came through today and after applying the update and opening the same files I was working on in AD again I noticed straight away a performance issue I had not seen before. The update felt a lot worse than my experience with AD since the start.

I've attached a screen recording which show the difference clearly.

I have two identical groups, the have a layer [same in each group] with fx applied to it. When the layer with the fx is turned off, the performance is fine, dragging the group around is smooth enough. When I do turn on the layer with the fx the performance is basically non-workable for me. You'll notice it in the video.

The fx layer isn't antyhing heavy, just a bevel as a test, I've attached a screenshot of the fx. I've also attached the actual file if anyone would like to try.

Also attached a screenshot of the peformance settings in the app preferences.

I'm getting a bit of that as well when I drag around objects with a hefty gaussian blur applied... . I'm not sure how it was in the beta as I can't reopen that now that I have the MAS version...

Hi BertD,

I've just recreated your file in 1.6 and found the behaviour to be the same. However that said the performance is indeed quite poor when zoomed in. I'll get this passed on to development.
