Instant updates across multiple layers introduces several problems that would make layer compositing incredibly slow, and would make smart filters impossibly slow.The only alternative would be isolating the instanced layer when you update it and not showing the composite as you update it -- which brings it to the same functionality as smart objects.No fuss, or manual labor, just a 1 click solution to get it setup, then you can continue to work.This would save artists a TON of time, especially when using hundreds of layers or groups/folders, where you have copies, but have to often delete those and recopy updated layers.To hide them, Forest Tools set the elements of the Geometry List to "Disabled".So, if you would like to recover the Forest mesh, set the Geometry back to "Custom Object".As you can see, our computers are rather powerful, but not uncommon (quite up-to-date setup for 2015).The secret of success is scene organization and workflow.
When you first launch and connect to an Amazon Linux instance, you may see a message asking you to update software packages for security purposes.
Not smart objects, where you have to open them up to edit/ect.
I mean something like in 3D (3DS Max), where you can copy/instance an object or in this case a layer, and it just updates as the other changes.
Control polycount The number of polygons the main scene rarely exceeds 16 millions.
If you want to sort quickly objects by polycount, add the "Faces" column to "Select by name" menu and sort all the objects by quantity of polygons.
