Ok, i´ll try to reproduce some patches in b20 and b25 when i have a few time, to see the performance differences particularly in dualcore machines, like the new tablet pcs.
Not for all the projects have we the possibility to use a core i7 with a gtx580 and ssd.
Besides this topic of performances, If i may suggest ooooo devvvvs please to fix the interaction mouse clicks on ioboxes
I know thats like a beginner asking why to a master but by the hell why on ioboxes it s freezzing sluttering ?
Ant there timers in delphi ( is vvvv still developp in delphi ?) to treat mouse click logicals outside frame based main loop ?
the points that interst me the most are those:
i’d argue nothing has significantly changed in vvvvs rendering engine after b23. thats why i’d love to see patches prove your statements. and it shouldn’t be hard to prove:
- when you are talking of “more resource consuming on graphic card” please show us a patch that when opened in b23 and b25.1 shows different output on Memory (Debug ex9)
- when you are talking of slower execution of shaders please show us a patch using a shader that when opened in b23 and b25.1 shows different fps using PerfMeter (Debug)
also this sounds easy to prove
- a patch doing a feedback effect that works in b20 and not in b25.1
simple as that, no?
we are aware of the gui stutters/delays you mentioned, but they should be completely separated in this discussion.
Hi joreg ok . Many thanks to have described the procedure.
@joreg, I will surely ask something VERY stupide once again.
I have downloaded alpha25.2… just donwloaded and open ( no patching).
with addons pack: 10 seconds to open (splash screen) until the blanck patch window open
without addons pack: 7 seconds
vs beta 25.1 with addons packs: 7 seconds
vs beta 23 with addons packs: 4 seconds !!!
Is it because of nodes browser data base creation or is it because its pre-loading somehow all dlls in memory ?
Sorry not to arrive to be precise, but “there are certain things that user feels” ( Kalle’s one). i will get one of my show, the one with 17 shaders, and see specifically your asking.
@alpha25.2: interesting numbers, but please keep all alpha-talk on irc only. we don’t want the forum to be confused with alpha vs. beta talk, so excuse me for not answering here.
thats fine, only it doesn’t help devvvvs or other users reading about those. thats why we always ask for patches demonstrating those feelings.
i´m porting my vj set from b20 to b25 and i found many performance differences, i can´t talk about b23.
I´ve attached a test. Maybe you know it ;)

Maybe it´s well known but i wanted to add it.
Simple sobel edge feedback effect, in b20 works
it doesn´t work in second screen on b25.
It happens also with greg´s wave simulator shader as IO wrote in some thread.

@joreg: trying to find time to do it seriously
