I guess everyone is interested in the subject a bit.
So, it is still about a geometry exporter. I figured out, if I fill an array withe vertex data it fills extremly quick, and then I will print that out into a file, I will have at least 20-30% performance gain. Now, when I tried to do that in two task at the same time, then the performace dropped 3-400%, I am puzzled, is that possible that maxscript can work only on one array at a time? Here is a very simplified situation below. There is two object $t1 and $t2 (two teapots). So it will cycle through the vertices and then put them formatted into an array. Is that also possible that the getvert command creating the slowdown?
Thanks a lot!
