Slow startup time loading PyPlugs from network



Using the comminity plugins as an example:

Installed locally, Natron takes 4 seconds to load.

Installed on my NAS, it takes 4 minutes to load, way to long.

I use a Synology 416.

Any ideas?




install locally! :slight_smile:


That just makes managing things on a renderfarm a a bit harder.


In this case, the NAS is to blame for the slowdown, not Natron.
Natron loads all PyPlugs at launch time, and there is no PyPlug cache (as opposed to OFX plugins).
Another way to fix this is to select the PyPlugs you really need (I suppose you don’t use the 200 PyPlugs in every project).
