So I've finally made the switch to the Blender 2.8 series.

In the VSE the new visual indication of cached frames is nice, however I find it to be quite distracting.

Blender 2.82 VSE panel showing cached frame indicator at the bottom

Is there any way in which I can disable or otherwise make invisible this indicator? It is unnecessary for my workflow and is somewhat distracting.


I'll facepalm myself here. Of course it's in the menu system. View|Cache|View Cache:

VSE Menu detail:  View|Cache|View Cache

Turning off the checkbox removed it from the view.

  • $\begingroup$ In the sidebar, you can disable caching and in the Preview sidebar you can switch on/off the prefetch cache function(it'll only work if the main cache render is checked, tho). You should grab the latest 2.83 beta for an improved cache function. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @tintwotin: Thanks for the tip, and I had already done that as part of my workflow. I primarily use Blender for video editing—my workflow normalizes and proxies ingested footage prior to assembly in the VSE. In my use case the cache is redundant. $\endgroup$ May 14 '20 at 13:56
