Why is there a Performance difference, a seeming increase?
I am using Unreal Engine 4.3.1 and I've notice that when I click on the menus(any menu in the editor or persona or even to change from LIT to UNLIT) there seems to be a significant performance INCREASE. Now notice this is just when clicking on the MENU and with the MENU highlighted. Once you've made your selection the performance drops back down. This happens on both my Computers.
I've attached 2 screenshots and as you can see it is a difference of 13.3 fps and 30.9 fps. I ran the animation editor to make sure it is not my imagination and the animation that is running goes from horribly slow to silky smooth when I click any of the MENU selections.
Now I must add I am running beneath the set requirements. Both are laptops.
1st PC : INTEL i7-2630QM 2.0ghz with 8gb Ram and radeon 6770m 1024mb.
2nd PC: INTEL i5-3210M 2.5ghz with 8gb Ram and radeon 7670m 1024mb.
Thanks for your reply.
What you said makes sense so I went into the viewport options and turned off REALTIME (Ctrl-R) and result was I can now view my animations and all at about 60fps. Basically taking priority away from main viewport.
At least the end result is I can use the Engine faster.
Oh one last thing if you run the editor in fullscreen form (Shift - F11) performance might increase. Engine runs at 18fps default but fullscreen get about 40fps. That is one big difference.
