I tested the same project with Vuo 1.2.3 and 1.2.4 and with OS 10.11.4, 10.12.1, and 10.12.2 beta: my observation is that there is a serious performance drop when running Vuo in OS 10.12.
Since I had not done any Vuo work since September, I thought that maybe I left my project in that underperforming state. But no, it was performing OK two months ago. So I looked into Vuo versions since it has just been updated. But no, same bad performance in Vuo 1.2.3 and 1.2.4.
I then turned to the OS and tested on two 2013 Mac Pros under OS 10.11.4, 10.2.1, and 10.12.2. Under 10.11.4, I easily get the 25 fps I programmed (set by the
Fire Periodically node), but when I run the composition under 10.12.1 or 10.12.2, it drops to around 6 fps.
Anybody else has encountered this?
