Maya further refines Cached Playback with support for dynamics, image planes, smooth mesh previews, and custom plugins, as well as a new Ghosting preview. Layered dynamics caching separates background processing of dynamics and the core animation within a scene. With dynamics caching on a secondary layer, you can continue working and see simulations like cloth and muscles running in real-time as you animate. Image planes are now cached the same way as animation through Cached Playback. If a scene has a sequence of images applied onto an image plane, rather than loading the images during playback, Maya now stores the images directly in the evaluation cache, allowing for much faster playback. This is especially useful when working with dense, asset-heavy scenes where memory limits can be reached quickly.
