FEATURE: Option to decrease quality of Previewer on Writer's Portal

There should be an option to control the quality settings of the Episode Previewer on the writers portal (LOW QUALITY/MEDIUM QUALITY/HIGH QUALITY), just like they have in video games.

I’m currently using a Macbook Pro 2017. When the Episode previewer is enabled, my laptop fan runs really fast and my browser begins to lag, even if I don’t have any other programs open except for my browser (chrome/disabled extentions).

Perhaps being able to decrease the quality of the previewer would reduce CPU usage and will eliminate the lag.

I believe this feature would be beneficial also to people who are using older computing models.

Yes, please! I think this option would be beneficial to everyone.
More likely than not, I’m sure most authors have experience this lag due to having “too much coding” during a particular scene in their stories!

I have a MacBook Pro 2013 lol, which still works perfectly with everything else, but when I use the Web Previewer it starts going crazy after a few minutes

Sorry to hear this is happening. This request will be added to the feature request list. Only thing I can recommend as a solution is using a different computer. Now a day’s companies seem to be making them with what seems to be the intentions of making them practically disposable after a few years. :sob:

I very much support this. I have a two month old MacBook Pro and it’s SO slow when I’m making scenes with more than ten people in it.

Oh my gosh, support. My computer is like an airplane taking off when I use it. It overheats real bad and froze a few times.
