X-file performance

Hey everybody,

I’ve got a 3d modell build up by 3 smaller parts - actually its a neuron with some dynamically attached “legs”.
Now, I wonder if its better to load my 3 modells seperately or as one x-file and get its subsets with GetSlice. Is there a performance increase or is it limited in size and not recommendable?

i’d recommend using one xfile if you want to draw all subsets with the same effect. if you have a reason to use different effects for the subsets, then it could be more convenient to use separate xfiles. there shouldn’t be a performance gain/loss either way.

Thanks joreg
