Speed improvements ?

Will there be speed improvements soon,
and if, will they affect old systems too.


There are no speedups planned, but if you or anyone you know has ideas or patches on how to speed up synfig, please let us know.

Sadly, no. I can’t help with that.
I can’t even properly test this app. It’s just too slow on my old machine.

It was a bit of a shock for me at first 'couse I have 3ds max and Moho installed, and they are reasonably fast.

What are the specs of your machine?

darco planned a 2000% speedup before he released synfig, but he hasn’t had time to do that and doesn’t have time for synfig if at all these days.

Some VIA motherboard, Athlon XP1800+, 768 MB Ram, ATI Radeon 9200.
With highly optimized Windows, and I didn’t have any bigger problem with workflow in any app previously.

I saw it in ‘Getting Started’ document, it’s a pity he can’t work on that.
I think that would be ‘best new feature of synfig’.
