Performance Tips
Top  Previous  Next

Here are some tips for improving system performance and reducing memory requirements during the design process:

·Limit the amount of lights and decorations you add to your design.  
·Create your project without the yard if you aren't going to need it.  
·Use the decoration wizard to consolidate several objects into a single object.  
·Do not check the "Front and Back" option. Rendering the back side of decorations takes more memory and only adds value when looking from the side and rear of the project.  
·Limit the use of 3D bulbs.  
·Limit the use and/or turn off 3D lights while designing.  
·Zoom in while designing to decrease the number of lights and decorations the software has to render at once.  
·Do not maximize the screen size. (larger takes more memory)  
·Close any other applications you don't need.  
·Temporarily decreasing your screen resolution to 1024 by 768 and setting the color depth to 16 bit instead of 32 bit.
