subobject level = performance killer?

hi all,

need some help with a current script i am writing:
all the time when it comes to subobjectlevel operations i have problems with huge performance issues. i know my scripting skills are less professional but maybe someone can point me into the right direction.

here the part of my script that makes the problems:

for c in chamferObjs do (
 
addModifier c (Edit_Poly name:"EditPoly_customChamfer")
 
clearSelection()
select c
 
subobjectLevel = 2
 
objEdges = $.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].GetNumEdges() 
 
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].Select #Edge #{1..objEdges}
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].SetOperation #ChamferEdge
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].chamferEdgeAmount = chamAmount
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].edgeChamferSegments = chamSegs
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].chamferEdgeOpen = chamOpen
$.modifiers["EditPoly_customChamfer"].Commit ()
 
subobjectLevel = 0
 
) -- end for

i think the problem occurs as soon as i get into object selection mode that causes max to show what is going on and refreshing max/scene takes much longer. but without selecting each object i can not get my modifications done.

attached you find the whole script if it might help to understand what the script is used to do.

thanks in advance

try to NOT be in the modifer

try to NOT be in the modifer tab, "activate" the "max create mode"
you might have to use a diffrent method of setting the vals and evaluating them but it will be faster.

Hi! Check maxscript reference

Hi!

Check maxscript reference for "Refreshing the viewports" .

And try this:

for c in chamferObjs do with redraw off (

Also use this code to see the time

...

    on btnChamfer pressed do
    (
        s = timestamp()
        fnChamferObjs()
        end = timestamp()
        format "time: %\n" ((end - s)/1000.0)
    ) --end on
   
    on btnChamferUndo pressed do
    (
        fnChamferObjsUndo()
    ) --end on
) -- end rollout

-- clearListener()
