switching render layers takes aaages

is there a way to hasten the switching of render layers. The scene isnt that particularly heavy, it does contain some referencing. but why would switching render layers become a 5 minutes waiting job?

Simply put,

be sure all your viewports are not in shaded with textures....instead just shaded or even Wireframe mode

....the time it needs is for shader lookups which wont happen if in just wireframe mode

thanks, I did that, still slow but I think it's a little bit better.

mostly the problem is, when you copy the masterlayer. i donīt know why, but when you copy the copy (etc.) maya is getting extremly slow.
creating new renderlayer is much faster (and these, you can copy whithout speed problems).
