I'm working on a rather complex animation where I plan to use Metaballs to shape a certain geometry in combination with Animation Nodes. I have managed to get what I want by using the Object Instancer node, and the result looks just fine. But the Viewport becomes unbearable slow because of the high amount of Objects in the scene. The Polycount thanks to Metaball merging would not be an issue though.
To improve that interaction performance, I'd like to place, add and edit my metaballs in Edit Mode instead. Is this possible? Merging the Object Instances into one new target mesh would by the way also work for me, I just couldn't find a node that does this.
