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!
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.
