We're trying to set up RV in our studio for grabbing a bunch of shots to watch whole episodes and also dailies. For both of these, we're interested in having sequences with stacks in them so we could have these stacks contain a few layers with older versions of the current shot. That way you could swap out a newer version for an older one and watch it in context of the current sequence.
However that drastically affects the buffer and loading time because RV caches every layer of a stack even though only the top one is actually visible at all. I had thought that maybe using Replace instead of Over for the view mode would help, but it seems like everything is still being cached and any pixels not visible are just ignored.
So does anyone have a solution to this or a workaround they've used in the past to handle this a different way?
