I've been doing 2 days my character model. It's quite low poly model but during the whole project for some reason my Maya have been very sluggish. If I select something it takes few seconds to show the selection or if I change the tool it thinks few seconds. So the "beachball" is showing allmost all the time and it's very frustrating to work. Before when I have worked with very high poly models it have worked very well and with no lagging at all. Where could be the problem and how to fix it?
I'm working with Maya 2012 on early 2011 Macbook Pro.
I believe that slow response when changing selection can sometimes be caused by problems with the graphics card. If the card isn't one of the ones on Autodesk's list of approved hardware, that might be the issue. Try searching the archives or the internet for more information.
