HeavyM can be very resource-intensive, here are a few tips to help you make sure you’ll get the best performance out of it:
- Make sure HeavyM is running on the 3D graphics card and that its drivers are up to date.
- Try to reduce your use of resource-intensive features when you don't need them. For example, you can disable the preview in the canvas (View → Show Preview), or disable Spout/Syphon (Output → Enable Spout/Syphon) and NDI (Output → Enable NDI) when you're not using them.
- If you are using videos in your project, try to reduce their resolution and bitrate and increase there compression to an acceptable quality/performance compromise. We also recommend using .mov/H264 files (or HAP Alpha or ProRes 4444 if you need transparency).
