Re: [Gimp-developer] Ways to improve Gimp 2.9 performance

All you have to do is set marching ants speed to 10 and watch it ramp up the CPU.
Perhaps setting marching ants speed to 0 should simply disable the updates altogether? Generate the ants at one time, and don't bother updating them again...

ImageMagick, for example, has been known to run considerably faster on busy systems with openMP disabled.

In GIMP 2.6, frequent "marching ants" were a CPU sink. (Bad "observer effect".)
