Not sure if this is a software or hardware question really…
I just recently reformatted my computer. Maya was running just fine before it. I run Maya 5.0.1.
But after all is said and done and all the drivers are reinstalled…I open up maya… and… it just isn’t running the same. Specifically- Subdivs are running REALLLLLLLLY slow. I am working on a model, and if I leave it in polys… the speed of the viewport performance in just fine. But put it in subdiv and it CHUGS. BUT! I noticed that if the subdiv object is SELECTED in the viewport, it runs much slower than if the object is still in subdiv, but NOT actually selected. Using the frame rate counter, with my subdiv object selected and rotating around the object very fast, it shows like TEN fps, but if i deselect it (but still leave it in subdivs) it hovers around 25fps. Why? I don’t ever remember this being like this before I reformatted. I mean, I know subdivs are slow, but ten frames per second? I use a quadro 980, an opteron64 248 the fastest one that is out, and a gig of ram, and ten fps? but… then faster if not selected? As far as I know I am using all of the same drivers and settings, nvidia drivers set to maya/studiotools (using 43.51) because that is what i had before the reformat. Anybody have this problem? or have a solution? insight? suggestions?
Anything would be appreciated.
ten fps… man… i mean, maybe if it was skinned or something… but just rotating ?
