^ The preview time is what kills most of us working in entertainment. Even if its just waiting on rendered sheet layer viewports for drafting. Various iterations and checking things takes time. Its hard to bill for the waiting time especially if it becomes significant.




Completely agree, look like as soon as Lighting Instruments are in the mix viewports get insanely slow to load...

The file "steve kitchen 3d" uploaded by Chris should be considered a test file for all macs. Just updating the viewport would take a least 8 hours on my present system. Has anyone tried previewing this file on a MacBook Pro 2018? And how long did it take? With or without a eGPU.
