GiveMeFPS

Plugins GiveMeFPS 3.5.2

Session plugin to quickly set ALL person & object options to give more frames per second
  • Allows user to set individual settings themselves
  • Allows setting of performance preferences for easy access
  • Can be set to override scene settings on loading a scene Make sure to save 'Session Plugin Presets -> Change User Defaults -> Set Current As User Defaults' to make this permanent on loading VAM or it'll only be active for that run of VAM and will default to off next time you load VAM
  • Includes CPU benchmark buttons to test how many FPS your CPU is restricting your system too (spoiler - softbody physics kill CPU fps)
New - Added adjust cloth on load of scene and model (this has to be enabled, it's off by default) - also added hair weight adjust

Background info
I was forever clicking through the menus to set many of these options so I decided to create a plugin to do it quickly.

Hair sim is one of the biggest eaters of GPU time and turning down the settings can give good results for FPS if your system is fps bound by GPU

Cloth Sim is also bad for eating GPU time

Softbody eats CPU time so if you're bound by a slow CPU this might help - I recommend turning of Glute and Tongue softbody and leaving breasts as best compromise. Note - Glute softbody is one of the biggest killers of frames.

On the VR front it should be noted, you need extra head room to really do 80/90 because if the GPU misses a single frame it'll drop to 40/45 FPS which is really annoying. Yes you can turn off ASW (Oculus) / Motion Smoothing (steamvr) but I've found it can be pretty choppy if you don't hit 90fps with steamvr and a vive pro

For reference my PC is a intel 9700k, 32GB ram with an Nvidia 3080. It's mostly the CPU that holds me back for more the 2 girls in a scene. Using the above recommended settings I can see the CPU being used far more than default values as the GPU is able to render more frames because of less demand.

I recommend the following also helps, if you think you're CPU bound, turn off hyperthreading - VAM is single core dependant. You can also mess with CPU affinty to try and get similar results.

Badly optimised clothe will kill any machine - even mine which is pretty top end can still be drop frames with clothe that has to many vertices with sim on.

10/10 plugin, makes VAM so much easier to use.
Works as described. Super easy to use.
Really useful plugin, even with top tier hardware you can gain some relatively massive performance jumps. Highly recommended! Thanks!
great plugin. very useful. thanks.
Donno how missed this. Thanks.
I could not have used VAM with my wek GPU without this plugin. My eternal thanks.
Most helpful resource for neutralizing very demanding scenes.
Really useful, makes it easy to edit the settings all in one place. Probably a must have especially if you don't have the latest and greatest CPU/GPU.
must have
Essential to the VaM experience
