Increasing Viewport Performance for Modifier Heavy Scenes in Blender

By Louis du Mont


Update: If just the modifier view switch is what your after then the pre-installed “Modifier Tools” will serve you well!

I was frustrated with creating hundreds of objects, adding various modifiers like solidify and boolean. The viewport would slow down so I made a little add-on to hide all my stuff while keeping an armature visible in the scene! You can also use this tool for toggle constraints on your model or skinned character’s forms if you’re working in Maya 2012+.
