When I open the Material Editor and select any material, my FPS in the perspective viewport drops from 250+ to less than 10. This occurs only when I select a material, and not just by opening the material editor. If I close the material editor or deselect a material, my FPS returns to normal. This happens in any level and with any material. The following message fills the console when the material editor is open with a material selected, though I do not know if it is necessarily related - “Failed to store dynamic module information, increase size of AZ::Debug::SymbolStorageDynamicallyLoadedModules.m_modules to maintain stack tracer functionality!”

Any help us greatly appreciated!

Unlike this user, I have had the problem in v1.6, v1.7, v1.8, and it persists in v1.9. My FPS also doesn’t just drop to about half, it goes to about 1/25th.
Possibly a known issue… no solution provided.
I am using most up to date DX and all video drivers are up to date.
I am not using any texture paks.
