@Barbecue?

Post by Animark » 05 Oct 2012, 13:51

Does someone knows and could tell me what ... @Barbecue (?!?) ... means? ... :?

It could be nice to have a kind of a power break for TVPaint. Often in summer my pc is very loud when working with TVPaint, because of using a lot of processor power - even when I am drawing easy things. In the past I allowed to use only two processors (of four) for TVPaint so my PC is not becomming to hot. Maybe this "barbecue" is something like that. :roll:

Congratulations !

You just found the amazing function of the killing death of TVPaint !
And as its name says : you just won a new barbecue... :mrgreen: Just joking :)

This is actually a new function which will allow TVPaint to make your processors work between 2 actions.
Why? Because, with new processors, some of them will go to sleep between 2 actions, when the software don't need them. And it takes a long time to wake up a processor when we need it, so the software can seem laggy when starting to draw something.

So the barbecue option allows TVPaint to keep your processors up, so it will be faster immediatly.

And the final question to answer is : Why is this option called Barbecue ?
It's because it will consume much more power than the normal use and some tablets or laptops could become hot. And the other thing is, it drains your battery faster too.

Can you specify for which processors this setting is recommended? Is it only for laptops and tablets?

Not only for tablets and laptops.
For example I have here an AMD Quad core processor which is using the Cool'n'Quiet option from AMD. This option makes my processor go to sleep when I don't need them.
You can activate/inactivate it from the BIOS.

With the barbecue option is here to allow you to use your pc in "eco" mode and to have a TVPaint at his full potential.

There is the same option for Intel processors but with another name ( I don't know it ).

So this doesn't do its job for those of us who have Intel processors? I need to burn and enhance my creativity so bad!
