    Hey Ryan- I'd be SUPER honored if could hit me up at stephen[at] with your feedback after you've had a chance to kick the tires again in a 5k setting. We've dropped some major updates over the past month to help shore up some of those known issues with higher dpi screens that resulted in some lag. A recent 'tree culling' integration that we rolled in should have resulted in a significant speed gain for you on 5k monitor here. If you're not experience that please DEFINITELY reach out to us and we'd love to dig in with you. :)

    Thanks Dexter! The team really appreciates the support and sentiments here. It is a LOT of work building a tool of this magnitude and we're deadset on continuing to listen to community feedback, iterate, and improve. We are focused on ensuring Studio can be a tool that continues to evolve and grow with the your needs as a designer. We've only just begun can't wait to share whats next! :)

  • Posted to Does InVision Studio lag for anybody else really bad?, in reply to Artyom Sklyarov , Jul 19, 2018

    Hey Artyom- would love to get some system specs on both of your machines and figure whats going on here. Not loading on MBP 2017 shouldn't be a thing at all. If you can hit me up with tech specs of each I'd love to get this over to our eng team asap- hit me here stephen[at] Sorry for the troubles in meantime, looking forward to getting to the bottom of this for you.

    Jay- we've all been there and I know it can be incredibly frustrating at times. I'd encourage you to use this opportunity to reflect on your skills and gifts. In my case it took me over a decade to realize that the thing I was chasing (being an A+++ visual designer) was not the correct alignment for my skills/gifts. It was only after some extremely wise mentors and life experiences hit me that I realized I was configured in such away that if I slightly shifted my trajectory I could A) stay in the field I loved and worked hard to be a part of, B) leverage my other strengths I had been neglecting/assuming didn't have practical application to my pursuit of design (I couldn't have been MORE wrong here and this was like discovering a whole new version of my craft), and C) be not only a positive benefit to the team I was working for but a key asset. It took a long time for this realization and perspective change to set in for me and I'm so thankful it did eventually.

    I don't know you, but I'm sure you have a diverse range of skills (in the both tapped and untapped flavor) and sometimes a perspective shift can be just what the doctor ordered. I've also found that many times I'm too close to a problem to see it clearly, sometimes backing away, taking an objective look, and then re-engaging can be the best strategy.

    Ultimately I wish you the very VERY best in all your endeavors. More than that I'd be totally down to chat with you live if its of any aid. Hit me at stephen[at] if you ever want to sync live.

    Chin up my friend!

    Thanks for the excitement Dino- we're working to get a Windows build out ASAP to you. We started with Mac first to target those core features for development but we'll open doors for Windows testing soon as well. Appreciate you hanging in there!
