Efficiency question

If I have a static mesh and a lot of positions that won't change.  And I want to get the barycentric locations to pass onto a moving mesh.  Is it more efficient to have a separate graph to output the locations of the static data?  Or is it the same if I have those operations in the same graph that is dealing with the moving animated mesh?  By having everything in one graph, does that mean my static data is recalculated every frame?  I'm trying to avoid having to calculate the barycentric locations every frame.

Hi,

 

As of the current version (Bifrost 2.2.1.1), use a second graph so that those computations are not performed every frame.

 

We hope to make improvements in this area.

 

Cheers,

Thank you very much for that info.  Excited to see what performance improvement this will give.
