Kelvin Speed Optimization ⚡️

Keeping the on-set experience fast and smooth is of the highest priority for us. In this sprint, we deployed phase 1 and 2 of a bigger performance update to Kelvin.

  • Profiler application performance for a long time running
  • Move transferred/hide setting files to workspace folder instead of watching folder
  • Move FileSystem functions from Renderer to the Main process.
  • Move timer of Idle reaction from Render process to Main process.
  • Chromium - Throttle expensive background timers.
  • Electron - Transparent render.
  • Improve thumbnail services: Cache file content.
  • Improve thumbnail services: Make higher priority for 1600 when images are dropped.

Other Improvements

  • Improve & optimize cost when using Lambda to make thumbnail

  • Refactor Asset delivery jobs (deployed 2021-08-08).
