Sorry another question, this time on performance.
My computer is a modest 16gig AMD 1800X with a Nvidia 610 (or similar GFX from memory). I notice on loading a model, or particularly when turning layers off and on with objects that sometimes I get a very long delay (feels like a minute or two), and looking at task manager in these moments one core is getting hammered flat out, whilst the memory usage creeps up one or two gig during this period. GPU is doing absolutely zero.
I am tempted to buy the RedSDK plugin for my TC2018 as it has GPU enabled rendering for wire frame as an option away from the standard engine. My gut tells me this may not make any difference as all the compute is being used to calculate the objects rather than display it I think - but I am tempted to try it.
Finally I am tempted to buy a 'professional grade' graphics card but again, I am not convinced this will improve anything as I never see my current GPU being utilised unless I have it displayed as a quality render (which I hardly ever do).
Ironically my 1800x is really good on quality render performance as the software actually uses all the cores.
Its not a show stopper, but I wondered what people's thoughts are before I splash a load of ££ on stuff that may make no noticeable difference, at least to my endeavours which at best use draft renders to check things.
Many thanks as always
