Edit: update from a year later. Studio is still freezing every time I bring an out-of-focus studio window back into focus after an hour. Sometimes it takes 10 seconds, sometimes its permanently frozen. Can we get a switch to disable this unloading functionality? I don’t need the extra memory…
Whenever you minimize a studio tab, it appears to save the frame that was last rendered and then completely unloads everything to save resources.
However this poses an issue for places like this:
It often takes around 10 seconds (sometimes more!) to re-load this place. During that time studio completely freezes up. This happens every time I minimize studio and bring it back to focus. Since I’m constantly switching between studio windows, this is a massive hindrance for me and is incredibly annoying.
Here’s me waiting 30 seconds to access a studio file that was already open, just minimized:
I can handle rendering windows that aren’t open. I can’t handle waiting every time i switch windows.
