Well, I recently noticed that OpenGL Display PPG of the material does not show up when standard_surface is connected to it. Also standard_surface ppg redraws slowly. Can someone reproduce it?
The OpenGL PPG not showing is a bug. I will fix that if possible or go back to old behavior if it's not possible.
As for the slow drawing, that's just because the standard_shader is HUGE. It has so many PPG items. The Softimage way would be to use tabs in the shader PPG. That might speed things up a bit. I will do a test.
Thanks for finding these!
