Ways to edit an cpu-heavy projects efficiently?
on Apr 27, 2014 at 6:28:37 pm

Hello, so I made some logos for a friends website. They look great, but he wants a few things changed.

There are lots of effects added to objects, lots of blends and lots of objects in general. It is quite a cpu-intensive project.

I'm a bit frustrated waiting for the effects to load every time I move something. I could go in and turn off every effect, but they're tucked away in different groups in different symbols.

I could have been better prepared from the start (put the effects in graphic styles to easy access them maybe) but it seems like there should be a much easier way to deal with this kind of situation.

Like a button to disable/hide all effects.
Or a way to turn off automatic refresh, like you can in After Effects using the caps lock.

Even using outline mode wants to render the effects every time I change something.

I'm using CS5 by the way.

Thanks for the help
