BR  Perhaps the question should be? 
  
Why is acceleratedRendering needed? And when is best to turn in off?  What does it *do*  ?

JJS wrote (the lists...):
    But they probably shed more light on your question.
    
 BR: they don't... they talk about different parameter for acceleratedRendering. Such as  compositorType, compositorTileSize, compositorCacheLimit etc.

Dictionary says: "The acceleratedRendering property has been added to help simplify the use of the accelerated rendering features."  
User Guide: Surprise! There is zero reference to acceleratedRendering? 

A search on Livecom.com brings up interesting result. The top hit it Real World Optimizationd by Mark W. Another hit is

https://livecode.com/container-layer-mode-examples/

which has interesting info, though it needs editing'

"Set the layerMode of the containing group(s) to ‘container’" 

Is not an option....

I guess we have to wait for the conference...


    
        > One would think it easy to find. But search the dictionary and these lists and lessons… nada. I sent this to support: no answer. I think they are getting ready for the conference. Maybe someone here can give it a shot.
