I'm developing a pretty big m4l device (but this
question should relate to maxmsp in general) with
an intensive interface and while building I'm
it's starting to be less responsive.
About performance and interface, this is what I think
so far (but correct me if I'm wrong):
- hidden interface objects are slow (they are sort of still
- putting bpatchers in bpatchers (etc) is okay, its the content of the bpatchers that counts in performance.
- interface objects that ore not set hidden but are outside of the screen (like in a bpatcher with stuff out of the frame because of offset) are not drawn and therefore not slowing the patch down.
- objects not in presentation mode present are not drawn
any opinions, more info or other tips related to performance and interface?
(btw, I didn't plan to change scheduler settings because since
MIDI is still the priority + it should work well on every
computer out of the box)
thanks in advance
