VUE is a 64 bit application, designed for the Windows® 64 bits XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 and Intel Mac OS X platforms.
Like all 3D packages, it is highly demanding in terms of computer power. Although the application is totally multi-threaded to ensure the smoothest possible response, you have to realize that there is a lot going on when you work in VUE.
Please note that using VUE on a system carrying the below specification may result in slow response time and longer render times!
Please read further on for recommended minimal specification for an optimal VUE experience.
Note: VUE Studio 2015 installed on a multi-core CPU computer will use a maximum of 8 CPUs on a 64 bit OS.
VUE Studio 2015 includes an automatic configuration tool that will set all OpenGL options just after install, for optimized previewing on your video board / driver.
Any reasonably recent video board (typically less than 3 years old) with at least 1GB of dedicated VRAM and up-to-date drivers should allow you to get the most out of VUE's OpenGL engine.
If you run into any OpenGL issues, try disabling background draw and antialiasing in the Options panel. Worst case scenario: you can always run VUE in software OpenGL mode.
