Photography Tip - Lighting and Shadows Settings
After more than 20,000 SL photos I realized something today. So I am passing that along. This is on Firestorm; I am not sure about other viewers.
I was wandering around my new abode this morning and noted my framerate was 21 instead of 55. We'll THAT's not good. Hoping this was not a return of network issues, I went through a personal checklist --- Windows Update? Change in environment? Change in settings? Ahhhhhhh.
I had changed my Shadow settings in the LIGHT tab yesterday when taking a tricky vendor photo. I rarely fiddle with those light settings as they can put a big strain on computers. Happily mine is pretty hefty now and it isn't really an issue unless I crank a LOT of things up. I set everything in Lights and shadows settings back to the default and my 21 FPS became over 95. Well that's pretty important to etch permanently in memory. I know many of you guys know this but for folks that don't (or have forgotten) there's my tip.
