So far I’ve been setting the repaintrate on the AudioVisualiserComponents my plugin uses to 80, and it seemed to perform well on my pc, and on a modern mac machine. However, on my friend’s slightly older mac machine, which uses a core 2 duo @ 2.4ghz with integrated graphics, the AudioVisualiserComponents (2 of them) causes my plugin to use a huge amount of cpu, around 60% in fact. Is this normal, and is 80 an absurdly high repaint rate? Is the AudioVisualiserComponent known to not play nicely with older integrated graphics chips? I do find that values below this appear to look stuttery.
Thanks in advance!
