I’m running Processing 3 on my new MacBook Pro with an Apple M1 Max processor and 32 GB of memory. And I’m wondering if I should be setting Processing’s memory settings to be something other than the default.
I see in preferences there’s an option to ‘increase maximum available memory’ – it’s unchecked, and the default value is 512MB. Should I be setting this – perhaps to several gigs?
When I run a sketch, I see with the Activity Monitor app that the sketch is using 1 GB.
Is there some best practice, or recommendation, for this?
