I know you must be up to your eyeballs in dev right now, but I was wondering how easy would it be for you to implement a ‘static thumbnail’ option on the nodes that can show thumbnails, the video nulls etc. - so that the node still plays an animation but you can leave it open as a visual reference without the GPU overhead. I guess to update the image a user could just untick the checkbox and retick when happy with the result?
Maybe the performance save isn’t worth the effort, I’ve no idea…
thanks and keep up the good work!
