Deprecated Effects in WPF RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,
    I recently came accross this problem wherein the bitmapeffect property takes lot of memory and it seems that property is deprecated , so when i remove this property i got considarable improvement in the memory usage. Can anyone please tell me the deprecated properties like this or rather the Controls or  properties which i should use very carefully.

  • As far as i know its just hte BitmapEffects they where always slowish and used memory cause they where fully rendered in software, if you use the Effect property that replaced the BitmapEffect property in .Net 3.5 SP1 the effects will be rendered in hardware when possible.
